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
Happy New Year! 2017 is starting off nicely with seasonably cold weather. Our first big snow storm arrived on January 6th extending through the 7th. In some Rhode Island towns snow fall was well over a foot with reported maximum wind gusts of 48 mph. But within 5 days temps have risen to the mid 40’s – low 50’s erasing most signs of the snow storm. For more regional weather updates visit the National Weather Service.
