Cleaner, Greener Communities grant program recipient

Cleaner, Greener Communities

Ehrhart Energy is a proud recipient of a substantial grant from New York State’s Cleaner, Greener Communities grant program. This grant allows us to provide bulk wood pellet delivery in the Southern Tier of our state.

Bulk wood pellet delivery addresses three important issues in our community:

  • Significant greenhouse gas reductions by switching customers from fossil fuels to a renewable, low-net-carbon fuel
  • Increased availability and access to a local, low-cost fuel that can save customers significant amounts of money while keeping energy expenditures local
  • Better use of wood waste products for the heating comfort of our residents

With this grant, we will deliver great advantages to the Southern Tier

According to the Cleaner Greener Southern Tier Regional Sustainability Plan, homeowners in the included counties use approximately 4.1 trillion BTU of fuel oil and 2.6 trillion BTU of propane. Businesses contribute another 2.4 trillion BTU of fuel oil and another 0.7 trillion BTU of propane.

If just 10% of these homes and businesses switched to wood pellet stoves and wood pellet boilers, it would reduce carbon emissions by 69,043 metric tons!

The Plan also states that in one year alone, this wood pellet initiative as the potential to replace nearly 218,000 gallons of fuel oil with 1,860 tons of wood pellets. In dollars? We would be trading $838,287 in foreign oil sales to $465,250 in U.S. wood pellet retail sales, and putting that savings in our pockets!
