Bioheat® fuel is stored energy—meaning quite literally, that once it is purchased and delivered to your home, it is stored on-site in your fuel tank. It is a finite liquid fuel that does not require a power plant to generate and distribute energy to your home or business. Instead, your renewable energy supply is right there and ready to supply heat or hot water whenever you need to switch on an appliance.
- Safely stored in a fuel tank on your property
- Ready and available whenever you need it
- Independent from external generation
For comparison, did you know that one 275-gallon tank of Bioheat® fuel contains 10,670 kilowatt hours of energy? That’s equivalent to the energy contained within 109 fully charged Ford F-150 electric pickup trucks! However, unlike the 9.7 hours it would take to recharge one pickup truck, a Bioheat® fuel storage tank can be completely refilled in fewer than 6 minutes. This calculation showcases only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to conceptualizing the security that stored energy like Bioheat® fuel provides.
