Kennebec Journal - 1/12/2012.
By Mechele Cooper – Augusta: Ken Ellis converted the heating in his 23 greenhouses from oil to wood pellets three years ago. The owner of Sunset Greenhouses in Fairfield said that while his consumption of pellets is still significant – 172 tons a year – his use of heating oil, which he uses only as a backup, has been dramatically reduced. "I burned 35,000 gallons of No. 2 fuel oil and that's been cut down to 9,000 gallons," Ellis said. "My total fuel bill is below half."
