For example, were you aware that you can earn a tax credit for using Bioheat® fuel for space heating or water heating in your home? In this blog post, we’ll tell you how, and share some other ways you can save big using Bioheat® fuel!

About the NY Clean Heating Fuel Credit

Who is eligible for the tax credit?

Anyone who purchased Bioheat® fuel for space heating or hot water production for residential purposes within New York State is eligible to receive a tax credit.

How much is the tax credit?

That depends on what blend of Bioheat® fuel you receive. For example, here at Blueox Energy, we proudly deliver B10 Bioheat® fuel, which is 10% Bioheat® fuel blended with 90% traditional heating oil. The credit is equal to one cent for each percent of biodiesel per gallon of Bioheat® fuel.

Think about it this way: If you’re a Blueox Energy customer who orders 250 gallons of Bioheat® fuel that is 10% biodiesel (B10), the amount of credit allowed on the purchase is $25.00 ($0.10 X 250 gallons = $25.00).

Other Ways to Save on Bioheat® Fuel Investments
