Woodpellets.com Offsets Carbon Emissions by Planting a Tree for Every Delivery

Woodpellets.com Offsetting Carbon by Planting One Tree for Every Wood PelletDelivery

As the next step in our sustainability journey, we’re proud to announce WoodPellets.com has partnered with Ecodrive to plant 1 tree for every delivery! Trees have a natural ability to capture and store carbon dioxide, making them important assets in the fight against climate change. Our wood pellets are created from the waste of the lumber and other wood industries or standing dead trees to provide clean, green heat to homeowners. We understand the value that trees provide to people and the environment, so we think that planting trees is the best way to do our part in the fight against climate change. We look forward to doing our part to make our planet healthier and the future brighter!

Our new partner, Ecodrive, plants mangrove trees on protected land in Madagascar. Mangroves can capture and store more carbon than almost any other tree on the planet. Each tree can sequester about 680 pounds of carbon in its lifetime. 

Mangroves also create habitat for hundreds of animal species, including those that are endangered or only exist in Madagascar. They also protect shorelines from erosion and storm surges, keeping ecosystems and the people who live there safe. As mangroves take in water they filter out any pollutants before releasing water vapor back into the air. When you place an order for delivery you will receive the same high-quality pellets you’ve come to expect, but with the added bonus of having a tree with amazing ecological benefits planted for you!

In addition to this initiative’s ecological benefits, it also alleviates poverty in the nearby community by employing local villagers to plant and manage the trees. For every 100 trees planted, one full work day is created for a villager in need. We love that with the help of our customers we can create employment for people who need it, while healing the earth in the process. 

We believe in the responsible use of our natural resources. Staggering quantities of wood “waste” (sawdust, wood chips, shavings, etc.) is generated through the production of lumber, flooring, cabinetry, millwork and furniture. We turn this waste into wood pellets to be used as renewable fuel, preventing it from ending up in a landfill and releasing greenhouse gasses as it decomposes. Burning one ton of wood pellets eliminates 1,500 pounds of carbon emissions compared to heating oil. While our wood pellets already provide a renewable heating source to so many families, we wanted to take our sustainability to the next level by partnering with Ecodrive to make every delivery climate positive. 

We look forward to discovering the positive impact we can make by planting trees with the help of our wonderful customers and our new friends at Ecodrive!

Wood Pellets: 3 Reasons to Consider This Low-Carbon Renewable Fuel for Home Heating

Renewable Across the Board

Wood pellets manufactured from carbon-neutral wood fiber is an innovative utilization of wood waste generated by the manufacturing of other products.

Every day wood “waste” (sawdust, wood chips, shavings, etc.) is generated in staggering quantities through the production of lumber, flooring, cabinetry, millwork and furniture.

These leftover clean wood residues that would otherwise be considered as “waste” and sent to a landfills is acquired by pellet manufacturers and engineered into an efficient heating fuel.

In 2020 alone, 8.8 million tons of wood product waste was purchased by pellet producers from upstream forest product manufacturing sites.

A Necessary Low-Carbon Option

Rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere are in large part a result of burning of fossil-derived fuels for energy. Wood pellet fuel interrupts this cycle by recycling the carbon dioxide emitted during combustion in the regeneration of the forests grown to meet the demand from the forest products industry on which it relies for fiber.

Wood pellet fuel brings a low-carbon alternative to the home heating landscape and displaces demand for fossil-based fuels with higher carbon intensity such as heating oil and propane.

Contributing to the Local Economy

Not only do they create jobs in their facilities, but wood pellet manufacturers generate jobs in trucking, logging and maintenance.

Additionally, it’s worth noting that five hundred million dollars of wood pellet sales for residential heating were generated in 2020 – often for independently owned small business owners.

Another Tough Winter Ahead: It’s a Good Time to Have a Pellet Stove

Woodpellets.com

In addition to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s forecast of an unusually cold winter, the cost of natural gas and heating oil is skyrocketing.

Folks in the Northeast lucky enough to own pellet stoves will likely be depending on them for heat more than ever this winter.

According to this NH Bulletin report, “The higher cost of energy is linked to inflation and other factors that extend far beyond state borders. Because American gas producers can fetch a higher price for gas abroad, that’s increasingly where they are sending it, according to Sam Evans-Brown, executive director of Clean Energy New Hampshire, a nonprofit that advocates for clean energy.

‘The cautionary tale here is really that we are over-reliant on a fuel that we thought was going to be at $2 per million BTU forever. And really, the story is that was an artificially low price. Now the mistaken belief that that was the norm is coming home to roost,’ Evans-Brown said.

Evans-Brown is talking about natural gas, used by just over 20 percent of New Hampshire households for heat. Those households could see a 30 percent hike in heating costs compared to last year, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.

For the two out five homes in New Hampshire that heat with fuel oil – the most common type of heating system in the state – spending is predicted to increase by 43 percent.

‘There’s nowhere else in the United States that is as reliant on heating oil as New England is. It means that these price swings are just genuinely unaffordable,’ Evans-Brown said.

But neither natural gas nor fuel oil are predicted to see the biggest price jump. The 17 percent of New Hampshire households heating with propane are expected to see a 54 percent increase.”

It’s Official: Wood Heat Tax Credit for Homeowners Passed by Congress

Recently, parts of The BTU Act (Biomass Thermal Utilization Act) were passed through Congress and signed into law, officially placing wood pellet stoves on a level playing field with other renewables that have been receiving appliance tax credits for a long time.

What does this mean for residential wood pellet heating?

A three-year investment tax credit (ITC) for high-efficiency wood-fired home heating equipment is now official!

The credit applies to the installed cost of home heating and hot water systems that utilize wood pellets, chips and cordwood at efficiencies greater than 75 percent high heat value.

The tax credit is for 26 percent in 2021 and phases down to 22 percent in 2022 and 2023.

For example, a wood pellet stove that costs $4,000 to install in 2021 will result in a savings of approximately $1,000 when applied to the homeowner’s 2021 tax return.

Charlie Niebling, a consultant for wood pellet producer Lignetics, has been working to enact the BTU Act for more than a decade. He has called the tax credit plan a “game changer” for residential wood heating.

“Our message to Congress for years has been…don’t pick winners and losers,” explained Niebling. “[Wood heat] deserves the same recognition in the federal tax code that solar and wind do.”

Winter Reminder to Clear Pellet Stove Venting to Prevent Air Flow Blockage

Heavy snow buildup can definitely affect your pellet stove’s venting and your burn experience. Wood pellet stoves operate through a system of air intake and exhaust. If this system is hindered by a blockage, proper combustion of the pellets can’t happen. Unlike wood stoves, pellet stove venting can be either horizontal, vertical or both.

One of the ways a pellet stove burn exhaust can be set up is horizontally, straight through the exterior wall. (See Fig. A) The exterior vent allows proper air flow within the stove, and the exhaust to escape. If it’s blocked by dense snow – your stove’s ability to ignite and/or stay burning efficiently could be hindered. If your wood pellets aren’t burning through fully – this blockage could be the reason. (See Fig. B) 

A similar kind of venting is through the wall with a vertical rise (Fig. C). Vertical piping raises the exhaust further up the exterior wall. This kind of setup holds less risk of snow blockage. However, strong snow drifts (or very high snow accumulation) can still create blockage.

Pellet stoves can also have exhaust vents exiting through the roof – with some variations (Fig. D). If your roof has heavy snow piled up that hasn’t slid off or been pushed off, the vent could be blocked. Make sure to check for blockage – no matter how your stove is vented.

Speaking of snow…our Woodpellets.com delivery trucks park on the street, and bring your pallets up your driveway with a forklift. Of course, there is nothing you can do about large snow banks taking up space on the road, but you can make sure your driveway is plowed enough for our 8 foot wide forklift. This will help the driver make a successful delivery – and help you avoid delivery delays.

Woodpellets.com Driver Hit by Motorist During a Delivery Still Manages to Complete the Wood Pellet Delivery

“I received my delivery yesterday. Unfortunately we had a problem where the [Woodpellets.com] truck was struck by an oncoming car. The driver was fine and his truck just sustained a flat tire. The driver of the car was arrested and charged with DUI.

I wanted to tell you just what a fantastic job the delivery driver did. He was totally professional and courteous through the whole incident. At the time of the accident he had unloaded 3 of my 9 pallets. After the accident was cleaned up and the police left he continued with my delivery while waiting for help with his tire.

He was one of the nicest and most professional delivery drivers we have ever had. All in all he was there over three hours and I thank him for his delivery to us!”
