2 Theres an Emerging Market for Pellet Heat Fossil Fuel prices are unstable and are seen more and more by consumers as part of the problem –Global Warming –Taking money out of our local economies –Reducing our national security Interphase Energy, LLC 2

3 After removing the peak of the 2008 spike and the 2009 recession, we see a steadily increasing price as world demand grows and supply struggles to keep up Interphase Energy, LLC 3 Oil Prices by year.

4 How does the Marketplace Respond? Wood Pellets and Natural Gas are the only energy sources ready to replace Oil as a convenient, clean and affordable fuel –Air source heat pumps cant meet the demand of the average home –Geothermal Heat Pumps are too expensive to install –Propane is as expensive as oil to the end user Interphase Energy, LLC 4

5 Wood Pellet Heating Systems Suit Mainers Consumers are looking for low installed costs, low operating costs, and reliability. They want to feel good about their decisions. The kedel is a stand alone central heating system. Installations of the Kedel are marginally more expensive than fossil fuel boilers, typically between $1,000 and $4,000. Kedels make use of buildings existing infrastructure. Pellet Fuel prices are low and stable. The Kedel is reliable. Its also easy to use and service. Interphase Energy, LLC 5

28 The Cost Of Kedel The next few slides show how we estimate the installed cost for a Kedel. Weve used our basic model, the Kedel 54 All in One. These slides are based on actual costing workbooks used by reVision heat, our Kedel Partner in Southern Maine. Every installation is different, but these figures provide a realistic look at whats needed to quote and install a Kedel 54 All in One. Interphase Energy, LLC 28

29 Sample Cost of Boiler Assembly for Kedel 54 All in One Interphase Energy, LLC 29

30 Built Boiler Costs Most installers will choose to pre-build the Kedel before it leaves the shop. This includes near boiler piping and pumps. We estimate this as a parts cost of about $200. Interphase Energy, LLC 30
