    Seriously, after burning Energex for the past couple months I decided to try New England Pellets because I heard they were pretty good. Holy crap! These pellets burn so clean and hot! If you have never tried them, I encourage you to do so.

    Hi geppapa,you say NEWP are clean and hot...... Is this clean and hot in general, or just compared to Energex?

    I agree! I laughed when I read the OP. It seems like once a year someone posts a positive post on NEWPS, and my first thought is, they must sell them. Sorry if this is in fact a real, objective post. Most people don't share your positive feelings. Maybe their product has improved. I'm not potentially wasting my money to give them a second try. The 3 tons I had to suffer through a few years back was enough to last me a lifetime.

    Are you talking NEWP?....or NEP? I'm almost positive there was a New England Pellet brand a while ago. I thought they were located in central(ish) NH. Thought they closed a while ago and were only open for a relatively short time.

    Guess they re-opened ;)

    Check your keyboard. The word Guano came out as Energex.

    My "Win a Ton" are complete garbage...I can't wait until they are all gone and it's taking forever since I hate burning them...They are barely tolerable even for being free.

    In general. I'm really impressed with the minimal ash and soot. Been burning a week and I'm convinced they are the best.

    I don't sell. I just used Energex and some other crappy Home Depot pellets. These are the cleanest and hottest I have experienced.

    I had to travel to Northern Maine on numerous occasions the past 6 months and I always take time to stop in a place selling pellets. I was surprised at how many were selling NEWP and how highly they were thought of. Hot and very clean with very little ash. I heard that more than once. So either there are a lot of people who have no idea what a good pellet is or NEWP's batch variance is very large.

    Not the first time you've posted that info. I'm baffled as well.

    Burned almost 3/4 ton of Greene team supreme.

    Jim,

    Saw the above in your sig. FYI Green Supreme and Greene Team are 2 different pellets made by 2 different companies.

    Yep.. None other than Green Supreme (AKA- NEWP)

    Some love them. Some hate them. Thats any pellet...

    There is a recent post about someone hating Somersets (Summersets). Thats just preposterous ;)

    I've burned a few tons of new england(the ones in the picture). The dealer I bought my stove from last year sold them along w/ a few other bands, so I bought a couple tons from him. They said they sold brands that performed well w/ their stoves. No point selling a pellet brand if the auger had issues or they were too large, etc.

    For the current season I bought two tons of new england and one ton of cubex from another dealer. I actually think the NE's burned better than the cubex, but then I have read some comments on the cubex quality not being as good this year vs. years prior. Who knows.

    My stove seems to like them. I like the house now at a warm 65 and these deliver even on the coldest days. I don't even have to run the stove on the highest feed rate/fan.

    I think it's all about what works best for you.

    They put out enough heat for my cat to toast his junk, which is always a plus.
