    Just called my local supplier [in New Milford, CT] that I have used for the last 5 years to check in on the prices.....

    WOW.

    Dry Creek $265/ton
    Energex $248/ton

    I've used Dry Creek the last 5 years with much success....but I may have to find a cheaper alternative.
    He said the delivery fees from his distributors is driving up the prices.



    Help! Anyone else in the Fairfield County area with a cheaper alternative?

    May be to far, but you can try:

    Tri-County Coal, Inc.
    113 Old Route 6
    Carmel, NY 10512
    (845) 279-2046

    They carry Dry Creek, Barefoot and others.

    Since people in Fairfield make 300% more money, a little higher price for pellets is just part of our new system.....
    :)

    How much is a house near the shore there? 7 Million or so?

    By the time you figure in the servants quarters for the person to load the stove, it might be cheaper to burn oil.

    Hah, just joking, but it is the 5th wealthiest county in the USA. Problem is, the money doesn't go as far (as with the pellets!)

    I think I am gonna steer clear of http://newenglandpelletllc.com/.
    Too many issues and potential headaches to take the risk to save a few bucks.

    Now I just have to decide which to buy. So many brands.....so many different opinions too.
    I may get 1 ton of NEWP and 1 ton of Dry Creek from Tri County Coal. I've never used NEWP, but have read good things.

    we'll see.
    later.

    Got my pellets yesterday.........

    3 tons Total
    1 ton Hamer's Hot Ones
    2 tons New England Wood Pellet

    I've only used Dry Creek before....so this will be new grounds for me. From everything I've read about NEWP and Hamer's, I should be alirght.

    Total price: $890.00 (including $85 delivery and tax)

    Comes out to about $296/ton with delivery........$268/ton without delivery.

    Oh well, prices are kinda high, but I guess that's what I get for living in Fairfield County.......ugh.

    You should NOT be charged sales tax on your purchase of wood pellets in the State of CT.

    Really? That's good to know since I have some coming in a few weeks. I assume because CT doesn't tax heating fuels?

    Maybe by tax he meant tax on the delivery charge.

    Thanks.

    CT has a specific tax exemption statute for wood pellets. I've never been taxed on the delivery component of the bill, but I don't know if it is really taxable, however you can see what you really are paying tax on by just calculating your delivery cost at the 6% sales tax rate. If you are being charged more than, speak to your dealer.

    my mistake....no sales tax charged.

    Hamer's are $5.30/bag x 50 = $265.00 1 ton
    NEWP are $5.40/bag x 100 = $540.00 2 tons

    Total for pellets: $805.00
    Delivery $85.00
    TOTAL $890.00

    sorry bout the confusion.....

    Try Tractor Supply in New Milford. I ordered and payed $240 per ton the last week of July and got a call Monday that they were in. That's the cheapest I could find anywhere in the area. They could not tell me what brand they were going to be but I took a chance. They rattled off several premium suppliers they deal with. Turned out to be Lignetics which made me very happy. Not sure if they deliver. Check with them, I think they are getting deliveries weekly.

    Kinsman Stoves $220 a ton for ProPellet.

    All you New Englanders come on out and I will load your Lexus, BMW, Jags, and Saabs. Please remember no American cars.

    Thanks and welcome to the Rust Belt.
    P.S. unleaded is $3.53 per gallon so fill up.

    The prices listed are already all outdated.
    As the big box stores increased their prices to $300/per ton all the other chickens want to get fat too and charge now the same price too.
    Would be very surprised if a Wood Pellet Stove user would find a cheaper price in Fairfield/CT.
    The guys in Oh are very lucky with their low pellet prices. It almost sounds to good to be true. Ohio is just too far away from the Tri-State Area for a fast pick up of Pellets.

    I know Tractor supply in New Milford CT is still $240 a ton. I think modt of the prices listed here are pretty accurate based on my shopping around.

    Not sure if they deliver. I borrow my landscaper buddie's Mitsubishi Dump that can handle 2 tons at a clip so I did'nt even inquire. Give them a ring and post back if you find out.

    just called them for curiosity, the guy told me the pellets they have in stock are already purchased by buyers who bought them sometime ago......they'll be getting more end of sept. or so.

    also, they don't deliver, they have a guy that does deliver on the side but not by the store.

    I was just curious, I have my 3 tons but is good to know all the options......

    He is really right on... In econ 101 It is called the trickle down effect. Anything and evrything that has to do with solid fuels will take radical jumps in the weeks and months and for a few years to come.
