Well the Ecoteck stoves have finally made it to Boston and will soon hit Distribution to the dealers. http://www.ecoteck.us/ As to Pellets, in Maine and the nearby states that’s a whole different story, oh where to begin? Well here goes: 1 First the mill in Corinth is wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy behind do to a lot of reasons, slow production being the biggest reason due to mechanical problems. Most Dealers I’ve spoken to are still waiting for their July Deliveries. 2 Athens mill is having growing pains and quality control issues that are leading to a host of related problems. 3. Due to the more than 35% increase in demand almost every mill east of the Mississippi, north of the Mason Dixon line and from Winnipeg to Newfoundland are MAXED OUT and months behind. (Trust me on this I’ve made the phone calls on 09/10/08 to find out for myself) It’s backed up to the point that New England Wood Pellet Inc. Is bringing bulk pellets east from British Columba, Canada to bag at their factory. 4. Once the hoarding stops and mills catch their collective breath the pipe line will fill back up, but it’s going to take a little while. 5. We have pellets coming from Canada through a brokerage house but they AIN’T going to be cheap. It seems some mills and brokerage houses might be taking advantage of the shortage situation. Don’t always blame the Dealers for high costs pellet. I think most are just trying to keep their customers from freezing or going broke to the oil cartels.
