According to the Governor’s Energy Office, the season’s average price per gallon for heating oil finished at $3.71 per gallon, and for propane finished at $3.10 per gallon. The consistently cold temperatures this season were a major factor contributing to high demand and soaring prices.
The cost of oil is out of your hands, but investing in energy efficiency offers a clear pathway to reducing your energy needs. Efficiency is regularly called our cheapest, cleanest energy source, and Efficiency Maine offers incentives and long-term, low-interest loans to make it even more affordable.
