Troy is a knowledgeable and valuable member of the Somerset Pellet Fuel team and his involvement and work with PFI helps demonstrate Somerset’s commitment to the bio fuel industry. When asked why he thinks the work of the PFI is important, Troy shared, “The PFI, through its legislative committee, and the HPBA (Hearth Patio & Barbeque Association), have been instrumental in getting two tax rebates for consumers who purchased pellet fuel stoves. The PFI has just passed the new Pellet Fuel Standards by which all pellet fuel will be graded—allowing the consumer to purchase fuel that has been tested and certified by independent labs.”

PFI is a North American trade association promoting energy independence through the efficient use of clean, renewable, densified biomass fuel.
