Northeast’s record-breaking wood pellet demand peaks heading into winter season

November 3, 2014 |

In the US, the Northeast is demanding record amounts of wood pellet heating fuel from the biomass industry.“Last winter was especially cold and long, particularly in the Northeast, and many pellet fuels consumers are planning ahead to be prepared for this season,” said Jennifer Hedrick, Executive Director of PFI. “At this time it’s important for consumers to recognize that purchasing large amounts of pellets that exceed their likely demand for the heating season could result in a personal surplus at the end of the season.”

Across the US, well over one million homes across the country have installed pellet heating appliances, and approximately 2.5 million homes heat primarily with wood.

The Pellet Fuels Institute (PFI) and the Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) commended consumers for planning their pellet purchasing in preparation for the winter season.
