Not too long ago, the need to trim school budgets would place sport teams or art programs at risk. Unfortunately today, headlines more often report that teacher jobs are now the victim of drastic cost-cutting measures, often citing rising fossil fuel costs which can destroy even the most responsibly managed school budget.

In a groundbreaking, first-of-its kind program, Maine-grown Pelletco, a leader in patented biomass fuel technology, is offering a limited number of school districts across the Northeast the opportunity to reduce heating expenditures for this coming school year, a savings that could very well mean saving teacher jobs, with no incremental expenditure.

Heating costs are one of the most significant line items in municipal budgets, compounded by the fact that annual increases in fossil fuel prices are hard to predict. As a result, many schools districts are examining alternative heating sources and searching for economic value. Wood pellets provide a viable option.

“With lower levels of sulfur and nitrogen oxide, modern wood-burning systems such as pellets or chips are widely regarded as a more environmentally friendly option than heating oil,” said Pelletco CEO Jim Knight. “Moreover wood pellets offer significant price savings over fossil fuel and propane savings which most school districts really need.”

Pelletco was formed in 2010 to produce, market and distribute patented bio mass fuel technology in North America. The rapidly rising costs of fossil fuels, combined with the need for a more sustainable, renewable and local energy source in the Northeast, drove the company to pursue the development of a new patented high-performance pellet fuel.
