EPA Releases Analysis of Emissions from Biomass Fuel!
It’s a pretty great time to be a wood pellet here at ReVision Heat! Last month, the Environmental Protection Agency validated that emissions from sustainably sourced biomass (wood pellets and others) are “likely to have minimal or no net atmospheric contributions of biogenic CO2 emissions, or even reduce such impacts, when compared with an alternate fate of disposal.”
In other words, wood is good! In an additional memo released with the findings, the EPA states that biomass can now be counted toward carbon reduction strategies under the EPA’s national Clean Power Plan. As Maine leads the nation in biomass production per capita, this is great news!

Report: Fuel Costs to Remain Volatile
On November 19th, 2014, financial services firm Edward Jones released a research document detailing for their investors the factors that are currently driving the prices of oil in the United States. Titled “What is Up with Low Oil Prices,” the report expresses shock at the dip in oil prices (a 30% dip, to be exact) since June of 2014, then goes on to examine what’s under the surface, so to speak, of the oil industry today and suggests strategies for investment.
Here at ReVision, we are obviously not interested in investing in oil stocks. In fact, Edward Jones itself is quite wary of the idea, though for vastly different reasons than us. (more…)
