-The KBF Story-
In 2010 Steve Fisher of Lancaster, PA had a problem. He was burning corn and pellets in his outdoor furnace when corn and prices skyrocketed. He soon switched to burning all wood pellets to heat his home, but the backbreaking work of pouring bags of pellets into his furnace was getting to be too much. Steve spent hours researching other means of getting pellets into his furnace and in the process discovered that bulk wood pellets do exist. Steve learned of the benefits of switching from bagged to bulk wood pellets and soon had a few tons delivered to his house. But the fact that there was only one company in Pennsylvania which was producing this valued product, left Steve thinking he must get involved in opening a pellet fuel company to supply others like himself who wanted an easier way to burn wood pellets.
For the first few years, Kingdom BioFuel LLC rented a delivery truck and did biweekly deliveries to a few clients throughout Lancaster County and the surrounding area. As the customer list grew, so did the need for better equipment to get the job done. Soon Kingdom BioFuel invested in a new state-of-the art bulk wood pellet delivery truck. Today, this truck make deliveries five days a week in Pennsylvania, Maryland and Delaware.
Kingdom BioFuel’s five year old motto is: ‘Leaders in Renewable Energy’. “There have been good times and tough times,” reports Ephraim Stoltzfus, one of the KBF owners. One of these difficult times, for KBF and customers alike, came in 2013 when a pellet shortage threatened this growing market. Many homeowners and businesses struggled to find the wood pellets they needed to heat their homes and KBF feared hard times. However the addition of their own pellet mill in Peach Bottom, PA set Kingdom BioFuel and their customers on a much more secure path in the field of eco friendly pellet heating.
Heating with wood pellets is a carbon neutral heating solution. By burning natural resources that otherwise would go to waste, heating with wood pellets becomes not only an economically superior choice, but also an ecologically valuable option as well. Wood Pellet heating reduces CO2 emission about 80%. Besides selling pellets, Kingdom BioFuel also sells pellet stoves and boilers that provide the best efficiency ratings in the field.
Kingdom BioFuel is enthused that they can produce pellets locally because it will create more local jobs and reduce dependence on foreign oil. Local sawmills will provide sawdust and surrounding communities assist in the production. Jobs will include running the pellet mill, selling pellet stoves and boilers, installing pellet related heating systems and more.
Kingdom Biofuel will have a Grand Opening in early January where you are welcome to come and see the mill for yourself, buy pellet direct from KBF, talk with the staff personally, and hear why heating with wood pellets is becoming increasing popularity. You will also have the chance to see the new premium quality brand of wood pellets that KBF developed.
