FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 25, 2012
Vermont lawmakers have approved spending $6.1 million in state money to make up for cuts in federal heating assistance. According to the January Fuel Line newsletter, issued by the Vermont Fuel Dealers Association (VFDA), a new round of benefits will be distributed at the end of January by the Vermont Fuel Assistance Office.
Governor Shumlin is asking for recommendations by March 1 on how to make the fuel assistance program “sustainable.” The VFDA has heard various proposals from lawmakers but no decisions have been made.
Pyrofax senior executive Dave Weiler commented, “We agree with the Vermont lawmakers that stepping up with state funding is the right thing to do. As we enter into the peak heating season here in Vermont, we want to ensure that all our friends and neighbors have the ability to heat their homes. Our Pyrofax Energy team will do what we can to support these efforts.”
For more than 90 years, Pyrofax Energy has provided propane and heating oil service to thousands of residential, commercial and agricultural customers across Western New England and Eastern New York. Pyrofax employs more than 300 associates in the state of Vermont.
