Maine Wood Pellet Company to Expand 

A wood pellet company in Maine is using a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to expand and create jobs. Corinth Wood Pellets Chief Financial Officer Steven Goldberg says wood pellets offer a cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to petroleum-based heat. Goldberg says the $125,000 grant money will allow Corinth Wood Pellets to add 12 jobs, and the company is looking into other USDA programs to expand its business.
