We will designate a 7 day period during which you must pick up your pellets.

We can load pallet tons with a forklift onto appropriate vehicles. If you do not have such a vehicle you will need to hand load the pellets into your vehicle.

If it is necessary for you to open pallet tons to deliver you must arrange to take the entire ton on the same day.

TAX CREDIT FOR QUALIFYING BIOMASS STOVES

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 28, 2015

If you are a residential consumer who has purchased a biomass heating system in 2014 you could quality for a tax credit! The credit applies to purchases made in 2014. Consumers who made residential biomass heating purchases need to have a proof of purchase for this to be effective. For example, a manufacturer’s certificate that demonstrates the unit qualifies for Sec. 25C and a receipt.

If your wood stove uses wood or pellets as fuel then you qualify for this tax credit. The HPBA states the following about consumers claiming this credit. “Consumers claim the credit on their federal income tax form at the end of the year. This credit reduces the amount of tax you owe. The credit is a reduction of total income tax at the bottom of your return, up to $300. This tax credit is a non-refundable tax credit available for individuals who pay taxes and who make energy-conscious purchases to improve the energy efficiency of their home.”

For more information and questions regarding this tax credit, find information here! Feel free to ask our professionals at the store

RECYCLING YOUR FIREPLACE ASH

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 16, 2015

If you are burning wood in your fireplace or wood stove you can recycle the ash this spring! Since wood ash is derived from plant material, it contains most of the 13 essential nutrients that the soil must supply for plant growth. When wood burns, nitrogen and sulfur are lost as gases, and calcium, potassium, magnesium and trace elements remain.

The value that your ash will have for your garden, trees, and certain shrubs is all determined by the type wood that you are burning. A quick way to measure what you think your ash is worth is that hardwoods produce three times more ash per cord than softwoods, and five times as much nutrients are present in the hardwood ash.

Before applying the ash from your winter season to your lawn and plants do some research on the proper amount to apply!
