Citizens Energy Corporation exists to make life’s basic needs more accessible and affordable.

Beginning in 1979 with oil-trading ventures in Latin American and Africa, Citizens has use revenues from commercial enterprises to channel millions of dollars into charitable programs in the U.S. and abroad. Whether heating the homes of the elderly and poor in Massachusetts, lowering the cost of healthcare for millions of Americans, or starting solar heating projects in Latin America, Citizens creates social ventures as innovative as the business that finance them. At the same time, Citizens Energy is constantly on the lookout to use market opportunities to help the poor and needy.

The Citizens Energy Oil Heat Program has delivered millions of gallons of home heating oil to poor and elderly households in Massachusetts and other cold weather states since 1979. This unique program helps protect needy families from volatile heating oil prices, which often leave households having to choose between heating the home and paying for other life essentials, such as food, health care, or clothing.

At Citizens Energy, we believe no one should be left out in the cold.
