  pellets 25% cheaper than oil
Feb 7, 2019

According to the State of Maine Energy Office bulletin of February 7, 2019, the average cost of heating oil is $2.90/gallon. It costs $20.91 to generate a million BTU with heating oil.  Propane is $31.53. Pellet heat is $16.24. 

In other words, pellet heat is now 25% cheaper than oil and half the price of propane!

Fossil fuel prices fluctuate with world markets, influenced by events from Iran to Venezuela.     Wood pellets come from right here in Maine, with very little price change.
