Bioheat® fuel is a high value, lower carbon heating solution for homes and businesses of all sizes. As a Net-Zero Hero™, you can enjoy significant energy savings — and cost savings — right here, right now.
- Using today’s Bioheat® fuel does not require replacing or modifying your boiler, furnace, fuel storage tank, or other heating equipment.
- Regular maintenance, offered by your current heating fuel provider, can improve the efficiency and extend the life of your heating equipment.
- If you do want to replace your heating system, a new high-efficiency boiler or furnace can reduce your annual Bioheat® fuel costs substantially, with many customers saving between 20 and 50 percent. Plus, cash rebates may be available with the purchase of higher-efficiency heating equipment or a new aboveground storage tank.

- If you are in New York State, you may qualify for a tax credit just for using Bioheat® fuel. For every gallon purchased, the Clean Heating Fuel Credit provides 1 cent for each percentage of biodiesel from 6% to 20%. For example, if you buy 1,000 gallons of B20 Bioheat Plus® fuel, you would qualify for a $200 credit (1,000 gallons x $.20 for 20% biodiesel = $200).
