Are you handy with a sewing machine? Check out this tarp made entirely of empty wood pellet bags!

The heavy plastic apparently helps the pile heat up and break down quicker.
Like any fuel, the price of wood pellets will inevitably fluctuate. However, even with their increasing popularity (pellet production has significantly increased over the last few years) wood pellet prices don’t get nearly as much attention as other fuels such as heating oil. We realize our customers might have some questions about what factors determine wood pellet price changes. As always, we prefer to keep our customers as informed as possible. So, here are the top five factors influencing wood pellet pricing:

1. Can You Say Polar Vortex?
It wasn’t just cold, it was downright Antarctic. And we heard the same story repeated again and again from our customers – “I thought I had ordered enough wood pellets to get me through this winter, but I came up a ton short”. Now multiply that same experience by the 500,000 stoves in New England and you start to see why there was such a drastic shortage.

The pellets shortage of 2014 has made it nearly impossible to find pellets this March. And even if you live in a region served by our home delivery service, the lead time has now reached three weeks in many areas. But is it too late to order? No.
What we have been telling customers is to “get in line” because nobody knows what might happen in the next couple weeks.
If the shortage ends abruptly and you don’t need the fuel – simply cancel the order. We don’t require any prepayment.
But if the winter continues even longer, or the shortage gets worse – you’ll be glad you secured your place in line.
