Has the price of pellets come down that much?


I have solar panels as well and typically late fall I still have "banked" electricity to use for "free". I've done the math and you are right. Pellets don't save you a dime if you have oil or even a high efficiency heat pump. However, it's a much nicer heat. It's pretty much concentrated in the room you are in (we have two stoves). It's probably break even at best but we burn about 3 tons a year. Again, it's just a nice warm heat on a cold night.
