Frederickson Farm greenhouse using wood pellet furnace, saving big over oil

"The greenhouse size being heated [with the LES BIO wood pellet burning furnace] is 34' x 96' x14' to the peak, which maintains an approximate temperature of 65 to 67 degrees. If heating with oil, we would have used approximately 2900 to 3200 gallons of oil to achieve this temperature with oil prices going from 3.30 to 4.80 per gallon. So the cost to us would have been approximately $12,000.00, where the cost was $7,500.00  this year. BIG SAVINGS AND IT'S GREEN" – Howie Frederickson, Frederickson Farm, Scituate, RI"
