TERRACE, B.C. – In response to the significant local need for home heating pellets, Skeena Bioenergy, in partnership with the Kitsumkalum Economic Development Group, is hosting a Community Pellet Day. On Saturday, February 1st, local residents are invited to come to the Kitsumkalum Boat Launch and receive pellets by donation. Volunteers will be on-site from 10AM to 4PM to fill pellet containers and help to load them into vehicles. Pellet bags or containers will NOT be provided and, given the significant need, each household will be limited to 200 pounds of pellets. Donations received will benefit a variety of local community groups. Skeena Bioenergy’s pellets are industrial grade pellets (I2) and while safe to burn in domestic stoves, they may burn slightly differently than standard consumer pellets and produce somewhat more ash.
