While the institutes have always shared the same goals – to promote the advantages of Oilheat to the consumer; to provide education programs to their members; and to support industry-wide standards of service and integrity–they were previously divided by region. With the establishment of the Upstate New York Energy Association, this division has been erased, as numerous energy marketers across the state now join forces to meet the challenges of their industry and the demands of their customers.
Like the Empire State Energy Association (previously the Empire State Petroleum Association), UNYEA will continue to represent energy marketers who store and distribute heating fuels (heating oil, Bioheat fuel, propane), transportation fuels (gasoline, diesel fuel, aviation fuel) and industrial fuels and lubricants. UNYEA will also continue to offer all of the benefits enjoyed by OHIENY and OFICNY members, including instructional and training seminars, advertising and promotional materials, meetings and networking opportunities, and a Realty Partnership Program that works to facilitate mutually beneficial relationships between upstate New York’s energy marketers and real estate professionals.
