The Future Is Oil Heat

Rhode Islanders can feel good knowing that they’re making a positive impact on the environment for years to come by choosing oil heat. Today, Rhode Island proudly delivers 5% blend of Bioheat® to all heating oil consumers in the state. Bioheat is a sustainable, renewable energy source made domestically in the United States. It burns cleaner, more efficiently, and with less of a footprint than traditional home heating oil that was used generations ago.

Bioheat – The Bio-Friendly Heating Oil

Bioheat is a revolutionary heating oil that’s only getting better with time. It’s a blend of traditional heating oil with renewable biodiesel. Bioheat is…

  • Renewable and Sustainable
    Biodiesel that is blended with heating oil to create Bioheat is made of renewable and sustainable resources, like recycled plant oil, animal fats, or recycled grease from restaurants.
  • Domestically Produced
    Both biodiesel and heating oil are made right here in the United States. Not to mention, the resources used to make biodiesel (like animal facts or plant oils) are co-products or byproducts of agriculture. So it’s a win-win for consumers and farmers.
  • Affordable
    Bioheat is the same price as traditional home heating oil and requires no equipment upgrades to fuel your existing oil heating system.
  • Compatible with Current Heating Systems
    No modifications necessary! Bioheat helps heating systems operate at peak efficiency, reducing the need for service calls. It is completely safe to use and extends equipment life.
  • Better for Our Environment
    Bioheat is a cleaner-burning fuel that is low in sulfur, producing near-zero emissions when it burns.

Heating marketers in Rhode Island have two main priorities: their customers and the environment.  For that reason, they proudly deliver Rhode Island-made Bioheat. The biodiesel used to blend with traditional heating oil is produced right here, close to home in Newport, RI at Newport Biodiesel. It is one of the cleanest burning energy sources available, so you should feel good about heating your home this winter!
