    We sell Rocky Mountain Premium pellets from Laramie WY. but we don't sell them to the general public you must have purchased a stove here to buy pellets here.

    Woohoo! Our local Harman dealer just dropped off our new stove and our first ton of pellets.
    The hardest part was scrubbing the masonry fireplace out Sunday before the stove arrived.

    Looks like nuttiness is setting in....the 400.00 per ton pellets on ebay had been listed for 200.00....I wuz gonna bid but they pulled the listing, only to relist at double the price. No big loss, as Tractor Supply came through at 211.00 per ton. I'd be interested to see what pricing and availability is come January. Right now, there seems to be a mad dash of people who were unable to get pellets last year. If somehow there is ample supply come January, we may see prices take a dip as the long-expected new pellet mills come on line. Wait and see.

    Roo- what I was alluding to was the 20 tons guy being one of the guys on Ebay! He buys 20 tons from me at $259/ton, turns around and sells them in 2 months for $400/ton, lets see.....$141 x 20 = $2820 !!! not a bad return in 2-3 months time!

    If you're serious about selling on ebay, DON'T start the listing at $200, otherwise you will be paying eBay $$$ in fees.

    Start it low ($10) and rely on market forces.

    I think I've got a better idea - we'll make one pound and 5 pound bags, use some marketing genius - and sell them for $1.00 for the one pound and $3.00 for the 5 pound. We can ship via UPS or post office. We can even send overnight. Heck, it's renewable and you can do your part! I say we give it a neat name like "STICK IT TO OPEC" Pellets.

    The maximum listing fee on auctions is $4.80. Not worth risking somebody grabbing them cheap to save $4.45.

    Sounds like they've been talking to our propane people. Same ballpark. Suburban Propane is offering an early buy of $2.80/gal and secured plan of $2.84. Over the counter is $2.99.

    We told them to take a hike. Installing a heat pump next week and the new stove tomorrow. We'll keep propane for the cook top and that's it.

    BeGreen, if I may inquire, what is your delivered price per KWH for electricity?

    About .07 for the first 600kwh, and then about .087 after that. There are energy credits applied to the total which amounted to about $16 on the last bill.

    To get those prices I'd need a fission pile in my basement.
