Ohio Homeowners Now Have Direct Residential Delivery, Pre-Season Savings on Wood Pellets From, Nation's Leading Provider of BioMass Fuels

GOFFSTOWN, NH--(Marketwire - April 13, 2009) - announces residential delivery to homeowners in select areas of Ohio including Cincinnati, Columbus and Dayton, giving them the chance to cash in on significant pre-season savings. Ohio's 4.5 million homeowners have been installing wood pellet stoves and pellet furnaces at record rates, and responded to increased demand in that area for residential delivery of wood pellets.

"We're committed to making premium biomass fuels available throughout the country, and adding these segments of Ohio to our service area is just one way we can do that," said Jon Strimling,'s President and CEO. "The company also delivers full truckloads of wood pellets along with suggestions for groups of pellet users to pool together and purchase pellets," he said. is also alerting homeowners that oil pricing is on the rise again, and futures markets project oil to break $60 a barrel by fall, when home heating oil will take a toll on many homeowners' pockets.

A renewable alternative is wood pellet heating fuels, which are domestically produced, carbon neutral, and have saved consumers as much as thousands of dollars a year in heating bills. What's even better is that Uncle Sam will now pick up 30 percent of the cost of a new appliance through tax credit provisions in the recent Stimulus Bill.

Early spring is the best -- and most cost effective -- time of the year to purchase wood pellets, according to the company that delivered more of the renewable heating fuel than anyone else last year -- and by a wide margin.

"When we're able to secure supply for our customers earlier, we're able to save money and pass the savings on to them," Strimling said.

"Historically, wood pellet pricing has increased through late spring and fall as transportation fees increase and demand rises," Strimling said. "But despite the normal, seasonal trends in wood pellet pricing, consumers can be assured that the prices will not fluctuate as much as oil has in the past.

"In the past 20 years, wood pellets have remained remarkably price stable, while oil has fluctuated greatly," Strimling said. "Not only are the oil-producing companies often in significant political and cultural conflicts, but the entire world is in great economic turmoil. With wood pellets, consumers can have peace of mind because their heating fuel costs aren't subject to foreign variables and potentially warring regimes. We aren't sure when oil price will rise, just that they will rise," concluded Strimling.
