MOC Has Now Become MEMA
In August of 2013, the Massachusetts Oilheat Council officially changed its name to the Massachusetts Energy Marketers Association to reflect the diversity of fuels and services now being offered by members including heating oil, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, renewable BIOHEAT, propane, solar, commercial natural gas and electricity, high-efficiency heating equipment installation and repair, and energy efficiency audits. Our web site reflects the name change. We plan to bring a new web site online at a future date.

MEMA at Work
- Our 2013-2014 daily degree day reporting service is up and running once again for member companies. Please call us for the toll-free dial in telephone number.
- MEMA is pleased to report that after several months of work with state officials, the association has secured a 10-cent increase in the Margin-Over-Rack (MOR) payments made to retailers for fuel assistance deliveries. Beginning this winter season, dealers will receive a 50-cent MOR versus the current 40-cent MOR. “This is a significant accomplishment for MEMA and well-deserved news for retail marketers in Massachusetts who have been, and continue to be the source of warmth and comfort for tens of thousands of low income families and households,” said MEMA President Michael Ferrante.
- Thanks to generous contributions from members, MEMA is working with the American Energy Coalition (AEC) to roll-out a fall pro-Oilheat/BIOHEAT radio advertising campaign next month in Massachusetts.
