    Very neat video. I have this fantasy about starting a pellet plant. Where do you even BEGIN to sort through that process?

    No yellow "pellet making for dummies" book out there yet.

    Quite an investment.

    That was a good story!
    I found a dealer for these pellets 5 miles from my house.
    I put my name in for 4 tons. She said deliveries are every other week.
    $295/ton

    Yes it is high.
    All dealers in this are are about the same.
    Hopefully next year and beyond prices/availability will settle down.
    Burning pellets is a long-term commitment not just for this coming Winter.
    Oil is around $3.60/gal here right now.

    Dysart's in Bangor carried them last year. I don't think they have them this year though.

    I got 4 tons this spring.I will have to get 2 more by the end of the year. Burned them all winter last year they are great pellets. I think they are better than the energex or penningtons I have used. They are almost as good as the cosy comforts I can get sometimes.

    Sounds Good!
    I called the distributor this morning.
    We should get them in 2-3 weeks.
    She told me that they are "Premium" 80% Hardwood 20% Softwood
    Anxious to get them in the basement before Old Man Winter knocks on the door.
