Colorado Biomass Fuel Organization Hosts Grand Opening of Retail Location
New Earth Pellets, a Colorado-based wood pellet biomass fuel company, announced today the launch of the organization and its first retail location. Dedicated to changing the local energy paradigm by creating a local pellet utility company that provides a one stop source for pellet appliances, fuel and education New Earth Pellets is a locally available, carbon neutral alternative to fossil fuels.
On August 14th New Earth Pellets will host the Grand Opening at the first of many local distribution and retail centers (New Earth Pellet Depots) where a wide variety of wood pellet appliances from stoves, furnaces and boilers, to unique items like pellet BBQ grills and beetle kill furniture are available for purchase. All products are available with financing, installation, home delivery of pellets in bulk or bags and service to take the fear and inconvenience out of making the change.
“We are inspiring a wood pellet revolution by informing the public about the benefits of changing over to pellet fuel as a primary source of heat to minimize fossil fuel use,” said Rosalie Bianco, CEO, New Earth Pellets. “Public awareness of the financial and ecological benefits of switching to pellet fuel is key to shifting the nation’s energy paradigms to greener more local fuel sources. New Earth Pellets is making a commitment to partner with local communities to facilitate this change.”
Wood pellets are an environmentally friendly, locally available, affordable replacement to fossil fuels. Cleaner, greener and more affordable than other forms of energy, New Earth Pellets are safe and significantly cheaper to use than electricity, oil or propane gas per BTU.
More important than cost is the environmental impact of using New Earth Pellets for home heating. A recent study by the University of California in Irvine found that a single wood pellet stove offsets more carbon than two hybrid cars (if using natural gas), when using electricity powered by coal that number could be as high as seven hybrid cars.
New Earth Pellets are made from damaged lodge pole pine trees from the Pine Beetle devastation in Colorado. In the future, New Earth Pellets will be made from trees that are part of the forest management thinning programs, which will help maintain a healthier balance in our forests.
In partnership with its sister company Environmental Energy Partners, New Earth Pellets has created a biomass community model that includes the opening of several small local pellet mills, that utilize local beetle kill trees from remediation and sustainable thinning projects. Smart management of these pellet mills will insure local customers will have a steady supply of pellets at a fair price. New Earth Pellets are made from a local product that will be sold to a local market.
The Grand Opening will happen on Saturday, August 14 from 10am-5pm at the New Earth Pellets Depot, 950 Simms Street, Lakewood, Colorado 80401.
