Fuel the Heat with Southern Maine Renewable Fuels
Received a partial load of pellets at closing yesterday afternoon. Both locations will have pellet fuel available for customer pick-up when we re-open this morning, but will be limiting the number to 3 bags/household.
If you currently have over 10 bags of pellets, we ask that you wait until mid-late next week to visit...please allow those who are totally out of fuel to draw from our limited supply.
Thanks for your understanding. Our goal is to provide each household with at least a few days worth of fuel during this cold stretch! Moderating weekend temperatures will help!
We have a good supply of Bio Products(firewood alternatives) in stock, with no limits on your purchase.
Windham: Tuesday through Friday 9:00-5:00, and Saturday 9:00-1:00. Earlier hours by appointment. (892-3702) [Directions]
Wells: Tuesday through Friday 11:00-4:00, and Saturday 9:00-Noon. [Directions]

Using more fuel this winter? Here's why!
Heating degree days (HDD) determine your fuel usage. Last season to date for the Portland, Maine area (February 17), we were at 4240 HDD. This year to date we're at 4791 HDD, nearly 12% more than last year.
It's interesting to note that we are only about 3.5% above average for a normal winter (30 year average for this date is 4619 HDD).

Win a FREE pallet of fuel!
To help celebrate our new Windham location, SMRF will be giving away a FREE pallet or either super premium wood pellets or bio products to two lucky customers/month (one drawing in Windham, one in Wells).
Congratulations to our January winners...Charles Tarlins of Scarborough (pallet of Cubex pellets), and John Callan of Wells (pallet of Rio Logs). February winners were Sharon Audet from Wells (North Country pellets) and Russell Sprague from Gorham (Canawick Bricks). One final drawings will be conducted at the end of March. You're automatically entered to win with each purchase.
If you're picking up fuel with either a pick-up truck or trailer, we will only load full pallets onto vehicles and trailers that are appropriately rated and mechanically sound.
We will use our discretion in determining the safe placement of product using our equipment. Should you decide to transport the contents of an entire pallet that we will not load directly with our forklift, you will have the option of personally hand loading the contents of the pallet onto your vehicle and/or trailer at your discretion. All full pallets must be transported on the same day.
In most instances, two trips will usually provide for the safe transport of an entire pallet with most small trucks and car/trailer combinations. It's not just a matter of will it fit. Weight distribution and safe braking capability are key to transporting the load safely!
Please understand that SAFETY is our primary concern here. Thank you for your understanding.
