So, I stopped by Dysart's in Hermon to get two bags of Energex and noticed that the Energex are now $249 a ton (still expensive)... but much better then the $280 a ton we've paid the last two years. I asked the service guy if this was a special or a the new price. He said he wasn't sure but thought it was the new price. I told him for the price I was willing to buy next winters supply NOW. He laughed and asked if I was interested in "trying" the Energex. I replied and told him how I've been burning Energex for two years. His response was that Energex was the best pellet Dysart's carries (which I agree). I also spoke with a man the other day that was selling Maine Choice pellets. He was parked in a shopping mall in Brewer with a "$220 with free delivery" sign in the bed of his truck. Free delivery, I could care less for since I've got the equipment to haul a ton of pellets. He told me that the plant in Strong, ME had a fire last year so they couldn't sell/supply so they were being aggresive this year. He said he had tried Athens and Corinth and felt these burned better. When I questioned him about Energex he said he had not burned them but had heard they were a good pellet but told me for the price difference I was better off with the Maine Choice (just like a salesmen--can't blame him). Has anyone tried these? Anyways, that is my Central(Bangor) Maine update.... hope it helps someone!
