Heating Oil Costs Hit The Headlines

The benefits of renewable fuel became even more apparent recently, as heating oil yet again hits headlines for the wrong reasons. With prices set to continue soaring the government has asked the Office of Fair Trading to investigate the “rip off prices” of oil.

To put this into a stark contrast, the renewable heat source wood pellets has continued to maintain a steady and affordable price. Priced at approximately £250 per tonne, 5.3p kWh, this is the equivalent of paying just 53p per litre for heating oil.

With the government keen to promote renewable heat, and £15million set aside to do so, more and more homeowners are looking towards fuel sources such as wood pellets to both save them money and protect the environment.
