Pelletco was formed in 2010 to reduce reliance on fossil fuels. Recognizing the need for cleaner, more efficient, and more sustainable thermal energy production, Pelletco’s vision is making energy local by utilizing regionally sourced raw materials such as wood, and grass.

Pelletco provides heat from wood pellets to businesses, schools, libraries, town offices, condominiums and other customers across the Northeast. Our unique approach allows our customers to convert from fossil fuels to wood pellets with no up front capital cost. Pelletco sources the materials it uses locally near the customer’s location.
