Great Lakes renewable Energy, Inc.
We are committed to the regional development of BioMass wood
pellet conversions in heating fuel appliances. We believe it vital that
structures that can be converted to burn locally grown, harvested
and processed fuels for heating are initiated immediately within
Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan.

Our objective is to make use of the large quantity of sustainable
biomass in upper MN, WI and MI. A recent study by Dovetail
Partners shows some interesting facts and details of Northern
Minnesota's feasibility and opportunities in that region.
COMMUNITY-DRIVEN BIOMASS ENERGY OPPORTUNITIES
There are millions of tons of essential biomass going to waste in
the upper Midwest region that can be utilized in both residential and
commercial heating facilities offering fuel savings up to 60% over the
heating season. The removal of this available biomass is critical for
healthy forest growth and fire hazard mitigation.
GLRE Initiative has taken steps to promote biomass heating and
have become representatives of commercial wood pellet heating
appliances up to 6.8 million BTU/Hr. We have held meetings with key
players in northern Minnesota and others to join in an effort to
promote the heating appliances along with the wood pellet fuels for
applications in MN, WI and MI. In order to create the many jobs
needed in the industry we must promote and successfully convert
large heating equipment to wood pellet fuel.
GLRE supplies many large heating boilers in Minnesota and
Wisconsin. Some applications are:
GOODRIDGE PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT
SHELL LAKE SCHOOL
BLACK DUCK SCHOOL DISTRICT
YMCA GRAND RAPIDS
NORTHOME SCHOOL DISTRICT
FRENCH RIVER HATCHERY
WOLF RIDGE LEARNING CENTER
TOFTE COMMUNITY SCHOOL
And many others.
GLRE Initiative's goals are to identify schools, government
buildings, agriculture buildings, greenhouses, factories, shopping
malls, offices, hospitals and a myriad of large structures and make
them aware of actual available appliances made in Minnesota that will
easily fit their applications and save them on their heating bills.
Another goal is to initiate dialog and help structure bonding and
funding opportunities to cover the costs of conversion to home grown
Looking for interested individuals in School district administration,
Government agencies, County agencies, City administrators,
Engineering firms in green energy, Green energy associations and all
groups or individuals that want to become involved in this exciting
Please join us in our initiative to create jobs, promote our home
grown and processed fuel to get our region off fossil fuels.

Here is an interesting study on the wood pellet stove sales in the US. Can you spot
the year the incentives expired? Doesn't take a rocket scientist to take a snap shot
and see a problem here? We have our own cheap heat growing in our back yards
and the Government doesn't seem to want to upset the big oil boys and their lobby
so we send our American dollars over to countries that hate us even to the point of
sending financial aid to Venezuela? Wake up America-Europe woke up years ago.
Sweden uses 3 million tons and is 173,000 sq miles while Minnesota, Wisconsin
and upper Michigan contain165,459 sq miles. We use 250,000tons and get this
Sweden's heating oil is $2.29/gallon equivalent and we are at minimum $1/00
higher/gallon! Propane prices in Sweden are $1.11/gallon and we are averaging
$1.29/gal in large bulk tanks. Sweden is to take the biggest energy step of any
advanced western economy by trying to wean itself off oil completely within 15
years. What are our plans? We pay more then they do?

Complete paybacks can range from 3 years to 10 years. When your
conversion system is fully paid for the asset is turned over to your
company and you enjoy savings on your heating bill from 30% to as high
as 60% per year. Our systems are offered with complete financing
packages and our fuel is guaranteed available. These are completely
automated systems requiring minimal maintenance while operating. Our
systems tie into your existing heating system with little effort.
Many propane and fuel oil clients would like to save money on their
heating and electrical bills but haven’t the money in their budgets to
purchase the combustion appliances necessary to convert their fuel to a
carbon neutral green fuel--- saving fuel/electrical costs!
Now you don’t have too! We analyze your heating needs and suggest a
system to satisfy those needs, we then agree on a “fixed” heating fuel
budget for 2 year increments. The budget is guaranteed to be no more
than existing propane or fuel oil costs based on the yearly BTU costs to
heat your facility. We eliminate the fear of fossil fuel increases and
fluctuations including fuel spikes. Your fuel budget is “fixed” for 2 year
increments. Your new fuel is home grown in your state, harvested in your
state and processed in your state supporting the local economy and
keeping the money generated within your state.
