The Oil Heat Institute, Inc. of Rhode Island (OHIRI) is a member-driven, non-profit trade association, formed in 1960. Our mission is two-fold: promote the sale of oil heat, and protect and foster the best interests of the consumers we serve. We achieve this mission by disseminating relevant and timely industry information to members of the oil heating industry, the consuming public, and to elected and public officials.

OHIRI members strive to achieve a high standard of excellence and provide their customers with the best possible service. It is our association’s aim to fully support our members to help ensure they can achieve these goals.

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.
