Only reason I ever gave it up was we moved to NH a few years ago and coal is hard to find up here and a lot more costly than it was when we lived in CT. I figure even if we have to travel to Northern Massachusetts a couple of times over the summer to pick some up and save a few bucks it would be worth it!
Pffftt... Dont get to excited about the prices in Ma. either
but if its any consolation If your paying anything for your wood coal still beats it hands down! Natural Gas is the only fuel currently that can come close to coal. I do feel however that coal for home heating is making a very strong surge around here and with that will come more competitive coal prices in New England as a whole. Many tell tails of this are in the air... Activity level of this forum, new memberships from way outside PA, inventory of pro coal burning antiques in shops, Chubby stoves starting to manufacture again, etc.etc.etc.
Also, as you can see... N/G is regulated BUT they have been and ARE removing all their wonderful incentives for tying into N/G (the first step they take before trying to ever so slowly pull the carpet out from under N/G users without them noticing
.... as soon as they do.... ITS a BOOM TOWN for COAL!
