    Yes muss.....I heard the one in Strong will go online in August I believe, but have heard its probably sometime late spring or early summer....as far as I know its production only.....but its going to be about 100,000 tons a year to start. Check out the links below....Maine is well poised because of our responsible harvesting to do well with the pellet industry....as for 5.....I have been paying 4.40 a bag broken down in price by the ton.

    Go Maine!!
    Love to see this stuff. Gives me hope that i'll my "strategy" of buying two stoves might work out long-term. Once Corinth stops shipping the bulk of their product to Europe there should be plenty of affordable pellets for us Mainers.
