Rhoads Introduces a Green Initiative

Rhoads Energy is committed to reducing our carbon footprint and lessening our environmental impact. Over the coming months, we will be updating our site with more information on our Green Initiative and how we’re looking towards the future with cleaner fuel sources.  Our passion for cleaner, more efficient fuels is nothing new, however. You can learn more about some of the things Rhoads Energy has already been doing here:


Rhoads Announces Plans to Upgrade Vehicle Fleet to Propane

“Propane eliminates an estimated 80% of the smog-producing hydrocarbon generated by diesel.”

A Cleaner, Greener Energy Source: Ultra-Low Sulfur Heating Oil

“ULSHO produces 97% less airborne emissions, up to 30% less NOx emissions and a 99% reduction in SO2 emissions.”

Hempfield Contracts with Rhoads Energy to Continue Fueling Propane Bus Fleet for Next Three Years

“Propane currently costs one third as much as diesel, which could save the district more than $2 million in fuel over five years. The district’s new buses are also cheaper to maintain than their diesel counterparts.  In addition, propane buses also reduce smog-producing hydrocarbon emissions by 80% and are 50% quieter than traditional buses, which is better for both students and the environment.”

Rhoads Awarded “Alternative Fuel Visionary Award”




Even the smallest steps can make a huge difference – if we all take them together.

During the summer of 2022, we’re asking all our customers to make the switch to paperless billing – part of the much larger Rhoads Energy Green Initiative that we’ll be rolling out over the next several months.

With paperless billing, we deliver eStatements directly to your email in-box. The advantages to you: you avoid postal delays, you always know where to find your bill, and you eliminate clutter in your home.

But the advantages to our environment REALLY add up, especially if EVERY customer opts for paperless billing. Working together, we will:

  • Reduce waste:  paper, printer ink, and time
  • Reduce our carbon footprint by saving trees
  • Eliminate over ONE METRIC TON of carbon emissions – every single year

Why not enroll for eStatements? Just head over to the portal now.  It’s simple, it takes just a couple minutes … and it’ll be a small step that makes a powerful impact. Be sure to look for future announcements about our Green Initiative.

You can sign up for paperless billing by logging into your portal account using the button below. Then, select payments – Paperless Billing.
