1 million oilheat homes,” said Judy Garber in the association’s summary.
of note, during the summit, John Maniscalco shared an idea
of how much money will be needed to get NORA reauthorized. Bob

Heating Oil, and Michael Devine
Jonathan Beckett gave a presentation
on his company’s foray into solar thermal heating and how this technology can
work in harmony with oil heat.

the theme of the day was the need for a combination of bio and low sulfur fuel

over gas heat.”
