The Opportunity

  • 5.7 million US homes still heat with oil.
  • That’s 3.2 billion gallons of oil annually.
  • Each pumps out 4-9 tons of climate-choking CO2 every year.

Today, the biggest market trend is switching from heating oil to natural gas and that’s even worse.

If you represent an organization that cares about climate, we would be enthusiastic to explore a synergistic partnership.


We stand behind every datapoint of our peer-reviewed content. Objective, knowledgeable, and technology-agnostic,
you can trust our content to reconcile today’s heating system realities with data-driven climate science.

We are guided by a solitary value: reduce heating pollution.
