Community Involvement

Community Involvement
As a locally owned and operated company, East River Energy remains committed to giving back to the local community. We continuously strive to make a positive impact in the areas where our customers and employees live and work, and we look forward to being a good neighbor for many years to come.

East River Energy is proud to support numerous organizations and their missions through both volunteer efforts and donations, including active participation in The Governor’s Prevention Partnership Student Mentoring programs. Whether thanking our local fire and law enforcement departments or contributing to charitable events, we never lose sight of those around us who demonstrate the same passion and energy that separates East River Energy from its peers.

Oil and Energy Service Professionals

East River Energy is proud to be a member of the Oil and Energy Service Professionals (OESP) for over 30 years. George McQueeney, Service & Installation Manager at East River Energy has been a member of OESP for over 39 years. He has served as Past OESP National President, New Haven County Chapter Treasurer, a member of the Education Committee and has served on the Convention Committee for the past five years.

OESP is dedicated to the advancement of all energy service professionals.
Our national membership represents service professionals in the field – sales professionals, small business owners, supervisors or managers of service departments, plumbers and technicians.
The goal of the organization is universal: To install and maintain high-quality, energy-efficient products and services to our customers every day. OESP supports our members through educational programs, networking and recognizing excellence via our annual industry awards.

OESP is proud to support Oil Heat Cares, a non-profit foundation that helps needy people and organizations in crisis with the replacement of their oil heating appliance. Throughout the year, there are countless stories of ways in which Oil Heat Cares has helped the old, the sick and the poor receive new boilers or critical repairs, ensuring their homes remain warm throughout the winter. We are especially proud to help veterans, who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms.

OESP works throughout the year to raise money for the foundation. Local chapters and members then identify Oil Heat partners within their neighborhoods that need a temporary helping hand. Over the years, OESP has installed heating equipment for dozens of homeowners at no cost.

Service professionals can donate their time and talent by identifying a project for a customer or neighbor in need, by donating equipment or supplies, or by participating in one of the many fundraisers held throughout the year.

East River Energy has been an active participant of Oil Heat Cares throughout New Haven County and has volunteered services to assist in both replacing oil heating appliances and donating fuel to those in need.
