In The News
October 2016 – Roberta Fagan, Executive Director of the Oil Heat Institute, Inc. will be running on Sunday Oct 23, 2016 in the Citizens Pell Bridge race to raise funds for the RI Oil Heat Charitable Foundation 501 (c)(3). Funds raised will go to help our most vulnerable Rhode Island heating oil consumers keep warm this winter. Even with the low price of energy these days, paying for heating oil is still a challenge for our friends living at or below the poverty level. The Rhode Island Oil Heat Charitable Foundation helps individuals and families in need to offset the cost of staying warm. The Foundation also works with the regional National Guard office to help Rhode Island veterans and their families with heating oil delivery needs.
All Rhode Island oil heat consumers are now experiencing the many benefits of Bioheat—the cleaner, greener, more-efficient home heating oil blend. Learn more about this renewable fuel and the positive impacts it’s having in your home and on the environment.
