COLORADO, April 21st,
2008: With rising natural gas prices
nearing $12 per decatherm, the ROI on implementing wood
pellet appliances is now between 1 and 3 years. It makes
the conversion to this renewable biomass form of energy
more economical than ever.
The return on investment
on new construction is less than 1 year. Pellet
fuel is very clean burning and carbon neutral. The
systems are self feeding, self cleaning and incredibly
efficient; and pellets can be delivered in bulk, very
similar to getting deliveries of propane of fuel
oil. The use of each ton of wood pellets can
reduce CO2 emissions by 2.2 ton.
Energy will be providing large scale pellet burning
appliances for commercial and industrial applications.
Wood pellets are used for space heating as well as
process heat applications. Confluence Energy is the
largest single wood pellet manufacturing facility west
of the Mississippi, with enough production capacity for
hundreds of large scale production facilities.
