We are firmly committed to green energy solutions that not only enhance comfort and convenience for our customers, but also save money over the long term while protecting the environment.
That’s why we are the only heating oil company on the North Fork that delivers natural heating oil with a B20 biofuel blend. Other companies at best use only a 2% or 3% blend of biodiesel. Because of our higher blend, the B20 Bioheat® we deliver burns more cleanly than natural gas! Our natural heating oil not only helps the environment; it helps your wallet too.
Clean-burning Bioheat improves heating system efficiency, extends equipment life and reduces service calls. New York State encourages the use of this fuel — to the point where they provide a 20¢-per-gallon credit on your state income taxes. As a result, our average customer qualifies for a $150 tax rebate every year.
We recently mailed out your 2015 annual usage statement listing all of your deliveries by date and gallons delivered. For your convenience, we have a tax-credit claim form and instructions on our website, which you can download and print. Just click the links for “Heating” then “Natural Heating Oil.”
Feel free to call us if you have any questions about this tax credit. It’s just another way you benefit from the Burt’s Difference.
