Raising the Bar on Clean-Burning Fuels

Dear Friends,

We are firmly committed to green energy solutions that not only protect the environment but also enhance comfort and convenience for our customers and save money over the long term.

That’s why we now deliver Bioheat® fuel instead of traditional heating oil, to all of our customers. Bioheat is a heating fuel made by mixing ultra-low-sulfur heating oil with biodiesel — a renewable energy resource produced in America that’s often made from the fatty acids found in soy, corn and other vegetable oils.

This year, we increased the percentage of biodiesel in our Bioheat blend to 20%. This is called B20 Bioheat and it burns cleaner than natural gas because it generates fewer greenhouse gas emissions.*

On the propane front, more of our service and delivery vehicles run on propane autogas than ever before. They produce far fewer emissions than the gasoline and diesel vehicles they have replaced.

We also set up a propane autogas fuel station for the Bristol Township School District. Its entire bus fleet relies on propane autogas, with an annual volume of 225,000 gallons.

In addition to Bristol, we deliver propane autogas to the Haverford Township School District, the Radnor Township School District, the Norristown Area School District, the Phoenixville Area School District and Temple University.

We know that offering fuels that are clean, efficient and easy to use is in the long-term interest of both our customers and the communities we serve. You can feel good that you’re putting your trust in a company that cares about our community, cares about our environment and cares about our customers.
