here in the mid hudson valley area the prices are the same .. green supreme 5.48 a bag - 10% for a ton or more... 6.48 for Green Team ... but they stopped giving a discount when bought in bulk (> 1 ton) .. lowes also advertises Virginia Golden on the website but order at your own risk .. they don't have them, use the same sku as, and deliver green supremes instead (NEWPS)
I got to ask, why are you burning pellets if you can buy LP gas at 75 cents a gallon? The cost per BTU would mean that you are burning cash dollars every time you burn a bag of wood pellets.LP prices are higher also. I paid 75 cents per gallon this year versus 65 cents per gallon last year for my summer fill. I own my own tanks and take around 1100 gallons. This lasts me all year.
Damn you get all the cheap fuel propane is 4.55 gallon here and fuel oil is around 1.75 gal. Pellets are sitting right at 295 tonThe break even cost of LP or fuel oil versus pellets is around $1.50 per gallon (LP) based and if you extrapolate the gleaned BTU's (pellets versus propane versus oil), if the pellets are say 220 a ton), $1.50 per gallon is the break over point. Myself, it's not economically sound to run pellets because the cost of my propane is about $1.10 a gallon, and I'm not factoring in the cost of the electricity on the furnace or the pellet stove either. In my case, my cost per BTU is less with biomass because I burn corn and pellets but I'm still not on the plus side (by a long shot) with pellets. I still use the $1.50 per gallon as the break point.
Again, we use the stove anyway because we like the fire and the continual heat output and the animals like it to. Cats sleep on top of the stove...lol
I remember when pellets were $125.00 a ton. Those were the days.
Propane / NG and fuel oil is much more convenient but again, no ambiance
Like I said, $212 here for pellets. Just bought 2 ton and in the barn. Have about 5 ton of corn in the grain tank, way more in biomass than I need this year.
Kind of understandable why the local TSC has 60 ton in stock, no one around here is using them. Not cost effective.

About where we are monthly with coal fired DTE. Less in the warm months, more in the cold months when the stock tank heaters are on a lot. Cattle have to drink after all. Never knew Ontario Hydro sold power to NYS.Ontario Hydro prices vary city's pay less rural people pay through the nose
Ontario sells power to new York and others for less than it costs to produce it
and the people of Ontario pay the difference.
Persons living in the city of Ottawa do not pay a delivery charge they pay 7 cents a kw
Rural people pay off peek 7.9 half peek 11.9 fool peek (7am to 7pm) 13,9
plus tax and a delivery charge which I think is 35 % of usage. My
Hydro bill for the farm is between 350 to 425 a month and that is low for an operating farm

We use the stove to heat our main living area when we are home. LP is set at 68* and use the stove to warm up to 72*. My wife has already told me that if we ever move, she will want another pellet fireplace.Again, we use the stove anyway because we like the fire and the continual heat output and the animals like it to.

That's a good price I paid 350 for a metric ton free delivery. I decided to try the expensive stuff after about 10 years of burning the cheap stuff. I'll let you know if the Cubex expensive stuff is any better than the cheap stuff you buy at Home Depot. I'm going to give it a month or two before I report back cuz I want to have a review on when it's burning on low this time of year ann when it's burning on high in the next month or twoHere in upstate, NY I bought Cubex for the first time and had them delivered to my house. So much easier than the previous 18 years of burning pellets wherein I picked up a ton at a time from my local dealer. I bought 5 tons at $269.99 a ton with a $30 dollar delivery charge.
The delivery charge was very cheap as the source (Sharp's Whole Foods in Belleville, NY) is about 45 minutes away. This will be my first winter burning Cubex brand since the first winter I had my house way back in 2001. When I moved in there were about 10 bags of slightly damp Northern brand pellets left by the previous owner. I'm told they are the same pellet as Cubex and only branded differently.
Anyway, I seem to recall that they burned nicely in the Lopi pellet stove that came with the house and so I'm hoping this years batch of Cubex are also of good quality. I can't say enough about the folks at Sharp's. They're great to work with and are super nice people...Check them out if you're in their general area as I believe they deliver to a pretty wide radius.
