Abstract

• Did you know that if you pay $2.00 a gallon for propane, you could afford to pay $426 per cord of wood or $378 per ton of wood pellets to get the same energy? You have access to this simple calculator to learn more. • If you know how much biomass you have access to (tons/year), you’ll learn what size electrical power generator you should get and what the economics would be. • Should you make wood pellets? • What is far better than those smoky outdoor wood burners? • How much money could you save if you switched your school to wood heat? • What’s the future of liquid fuels from biomass?
