Ehrhart Energy is a proud recipient of a substantial grant from New York State’s Cleaner, Greener Communities grant program. This grant allows us to provide bulk wood pellet delivery in the Southern Tier of our state.
Bulk wood pellet delivery addresses three important issues in our community:
According to the Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Regional Sustainability Plan, homeowners in the included counties use approximately 4.1 trillion BTU of fuel oil and 2.6 trillion BTU of propane. Businesses contribute another 2.4 trillion BTU of fuel oil and another 0.7 trillion BTU of propane.
The Plan also states that in one year alone, this wood pellet initiative as the potential to replace nearly 218,000 gallons of fuel oil with 1,860 tons of wood pellets. In dollars? We would be trading $838,287 in foreign oil sales to $465,250 in U.S. wood pellet retail sales, and putting that savings in our pockets!
The more you know, the more you will share our excitement about replacing oil heat with wood pellet heat. Please read through this section of our site, and let us know if you have any further questions!
