Robison is Going GREEN on many levels.
For oil customers, Robison is one of the only companies in the region to sell B10 biofuel – heating oil blended with 10% biodiesel made from domestically sourced soybean oil. Biofuel burns cleaner than regular heating oil and reduces dependence on foreign oil. Thanks to New York State tax credits, all Robison oil customers receive a 10 cent per gallon direct tax credit for every gallon of fuel delivered.
Robison is also an energy service company (ESCO) licensed to sell electricity direct to ConEd customers. Robison utilizes only 100% ‘GREEN’ energy to supply all customers! Robison purchases Renewable Energy Credits from power plants located in upstate New York. When buying power from Robison, you offset the carbon produced by supporting green power production elsewhere. Thanks to the ecommerce carbon offsets by CarbonClick.com.
Robison is even going green with its paperless billing system where customers can pay their bills online through Robison’s account portal.
