My South Surrey pellet prices have just gone up. First time in 5 years so I am not complaining. I am now at £229 + VAT per tonne up from £219.

Would be interested to know what others are paying around the country.

I was sad last time to be told a lot of the pellets come from Russia, there I was thinking local waste wood could be used. So the exchange rate can't be helping.

There are great wildfires burning in the arctic regions of Russia, Greenland, Canada and Alaska, certainly there were ladt week.
The forests are so sparsely populated and not managed.
I heard a figure of 220Mt of CO2 had entered the atmosphere from these fires as of last week. So burning some of these for power generation seems reasonable, so long as the transportation energy inputs are not excessive.
Russia has plenty of hydrocarbons which it would prefer to export before they become stranded assets, not fetching a good market price.
Only a short while ago, the uk was buying kusbas coal from western Siberia. But cannot see woodchip being economical at this distance.

Here (Norfolk) I last paid £333 inc vat, so a considerable mark-up on Surrey - though I donít do a lot of shopping around. There are variables, of course... what Ďsuitsí your boiler, bulk or bagged, reliability. That price is for a full tonne of 100 x 10kg bags of Balcas Brites, hand unloaded by supplier via wheelbarrow into my store - about fourteen 50m round trips from the small truck - and a premium Iím prepared to pay.

The last lot I got delivered to the nearest artic point were just under £300, but I have to transfer to my trailer, drive them to the house and transfer to the store. Balcas again.

my price is bulk blown into the store so should be quite a bit less!
