PFI Responds to Boston Globe Biomass Article





To the editor:

I am a pellet fuels manufacturer writing in response to the August 7 article on biomass fuels. It's a shame the story didn't present the perspective of any pellet fuels producers, retailers or consumers.

Our fuels, mostly made from sawdust that's left over from other businesses, are used to heat residences, schools and businesses across New England. Pellet stoves and boilers give their users more control over their heat source, and they save money and carbon compared to propane fuel and heating oil.  

Our customers take pride in using a fuel that is more environmentally friendly than any fossil fuel. And using locally produced fuels keeps dollars in New England's economy, supporting local businesses in rural areas.  

The virtues of "eating locally" are widely embraced. The Commonwealth should do the same with heating locally.
