    Biomass wood pellet prices - bagged and bulk

    Biomass wood pellet prices - bagged and bulk 7th Dec 14 at 12:10 PM
    There are threads about the prices of most off-grid energy sources on MSE, but I cannot find one about biomass wood pellets, so I thought that I would share my findings.

    The below prices are for 10kg or 15kg bagged pellets on a pallet, and are either published internet prices, or phone quotes, prices include VAT at 5%. All are ENplus A1 certified -

    I was surprised how much variation there is between suppliers of bagged pellets and needless to say that my latest delivery has been from Plumb Center. Price per Kw based on 4.8Kw/kg

    I understand that bulk prices are lower, hopefully others will be able to add some bulk prices for comparison.

    I have to say that I have not enjoyed owning a wood pellet boiler and the ridiculous increases to the bagged pellets has made it even more unpleasant seeing what i originally purchased for 230 a tonne to over 350. I will stock up in the summer months and as soon as the RHI payments shore up in 3 years time convert back to oil.

    Indeed I'm in the same mind as you. I think I will be looking for a heat pump of some sort myself as this property never had oil in the first place so a tank siting is difficult. However, I am frustrated at the choice I made of pellet boiler...

    I'm paying 285.60 per tonne from Swift Energy, delivery is about 10 days, but the pellets are fine. 350 per tonne seems very expensive.

    2018 Winter Prices
    Just bought some Verdo Euro Value from Verdo. Price was not as low as 2016/17 but not bad compared with last winter. Service & delivery were good too.

    pellet prices
    They seem to have firmed up. I have just ordered 6 tons (bulk) at 260 the most I have ever paid. Could have bought from Balcas at 250 but decided to try pelletdelivery.co.uk because they are supposed to have less dust. Think with all the Brexit uncertainty I would get them in just in case!

    The other comparison site, whose name escapes me just now, also shut up shop late last year, so woodpelletguide was the last remaining comparison resource. I do hope they return.
    Whilst my posts do not constitute financial advice, I am always, without fail, 100% right!

    October 2019 bagged wood pellet prices per pallet/tonne
    With the demise of the woodpelletguide website, I have had to collect my own pricing for bagged pellets, apologies for the strange formatting, it does not appear possible to construct a table in the forum.

    Weight is for a full pallet, first price is per pallet, second is per tonne, it is sorted by the tonne price and only includes suppliers prices under 300 per tonne

    Thanks Thozza, the links are useful to check in future.
    I'm sure I posted a 5% discount code for WHE, are such things banned these days?
