Many people are excited about the prospect of saving money and using a pellet stove for heat, but have questions about how fuel accessibility works for people in larger cities. After all, they don’t necessarily have corn or wheat fields in their backyards or wood pellet mills down the street.
Corn, wood pellets and other biomass fuels have been distributed world wide for many years. The industry today is providing several alternatives for getting the fuel of choice right to your home or local distribution centers. Bulk delivery, bagged fuel, and personalized service are part of the package when purchasing a pellet stove these days.
A few years ago, American Energy Systems was instrumental in putting a corn silo in downtown Takoma Park, Maryland in full view of the White House to show that fuel can be supplied anywhere people want to conserve energy. This project was written about many times by author and activist, Mike Tidwell.
