June 3, 2008 - PRLog -- Kremmling, Colorado – On Sunday trucks began to roll out of Confluence Energy’s new state-of-the-art wood pellet plant, the biggest pellet plant in the U.S. west of the Mississippi. Confluence Energy’s celebrated its inaugural shipment of wood pellets made from Colorado’s beetle kill trees.  
Confluence Energy began distributing residential bagged pellets to its dealers in the Western US and will be selling and delivering bulk pellets within Colorado.  Mark Mathis, President and CEO of Confluence Energy, stated “We are very excited to see these trucks going out.  I am incredibly proud of our entire staff for reaching such a milestone in such a short time.”  Confluence Energy carefully selected and developed its site with the express purpose of using the dead biomass – beetle kill trees – to produce an efficient and economical home heating product.  
Early interest and response from customers has been phenomenal.  Mathis continued, “We have some real challenges ahead of us. We are going to have to grow and develop our market to meet our production capacity.”
Most experts agree with the dramatic increases in Natural Gas and oil pellets are expected to grow in popularity.  Heating with wood pellets can reduce heating bills by up to 70%.  Popular in Europe, the pellet appliances are so clean burning they can be burned during areas on “no burn days.”
