Since the average HHV for softwood pellets is only about 2% greater that the average HHV for hardwoods and that the pellet mills produce either with a relatively uniform density of 40 lbs per cubic foot , then any bag of hardwood pellets delivered the same distance will produce about two percent less energy than the equivalent amount of softwood pellets that should cost no more than 2 percent more than the hardwood pellets. Assume the same MC in both. In truth then if the pellets are of the same quality as for size and length, then either one will produce the same energy at the same price.
