  pellets 20% cheaper than oil
Jan 9, 2019

According to the State of Maine Energy Office bulletin of January 9, 2019, the average cost of heating oil is $2.62/gallon. It costs $20.62 to generate a million BTU with heating oil.  Propane is $31.42. Pellet heat is $16.24. 

In other words, pellet heat is now 20% cheaper than oil and half the price of propane!

Fossil fuel prices fluctuate with world markets. Wood pellets come from right here in Maine, with very little price change. Firms delivering bulk wood pellets to Maine homes have now set their prices for the entire 2018-2019 winter.
