Who We Are

We represent more than 300 members, including 125 heating oil, propane, biofuels and motor fuels providers, as well as convenience store owners. Our members own and operate 70% of Maine’s 1,300 convenience stores selling more than one billion gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel and distribute more than 90% of all the propane sold in our state each year.

MEMA has more than 175 associate members who provide goods and services to Maine’s petroleum dealers and their customers. We also run and operate a 501c3 nonprofit HVAC-R technical training facility, MEMA Technical Education Center (MTEC), which is certified by the Maine State Department of Education and supported by a network of over 300 hiring companies throughout Maine.

The thousands of people employed by the oilheat industry—both directly and indirectly—make up these independent businesses, which are integral to the local economies throughout the state and state’s economy as a whole.

From Bioheat® fuel to propane to wood pellets, Maine homeowners have a range of energy-efficient fuel options to choose from, each with its own advantages and benefits. Please explore Maine Energy Factsand MTEC to learn more about what we do.
