Some heating oil companies in Massachusetts include Metro Energy and Mass Energy. Metro Energy is located in Boston and provides heating oil to various parts of the state, notes its website. Mass Energy is a nonprofit consumer's alliance that provides discount heating oil service to members of its group; it operates like a co-op, states Mass Energy.
In addition to these heating oil sources, there are also three other heating oil cooperatives in Massachusetts, notes the state government. These include Cape Self Reliance Corporation, Pioneer Valley Heating Oil Cooperative and the Center for Environmental Technology. These co-ops offer discounts on heating oil and may offer some discounts for low-income households. Membership for seniors citizens is sometimes discounted by heating cooperative organizations.
Metro Energy offers a computerized oil delivery system that is based on degree days along with a 10-month budget payment plan that offers a year-end discount and no finance charges. The company accepts fuel assistance requests and provides discounts for senior citizens. The company does business as M&T Oil Company Incorporated.
Mass Energy provides consistently fair prices, often discounted up to 30 cents less on the gallon than other services. The company's Smart Click Energy options allows for convenient online ordering and payment, with delivery within three business days by a local dealer.
