Westchester County Local Law #9014-2016

By Luke Wonnell

To all our friends in Yonkers, Bronxville, New Rochelle, White Plains, Hartsdale, or any of the other amazing towns in Westchester County still burning No. 6 oil in your boiler – are you aware of Local Law #9014-2016 and did you know you only have until July 31st of this year to switch to a cleaner-burning fuel in your boiler?

If you’re one of the buildings that has to switch away from No. 6 this year, don’t even think about going to No. 4!  Why’s that?  Well in just another 2 years from now (July 31st, 2020), any remaining systems on No. 4 oil will also have to switch to a cleaner-burning fuel (either No. 2 oil or natural gas).  That’s 10 YEARS ahead of NYC’s requirement to switch away from No. 4 oil!

Fuel oil companies in Westchester County will stop making No. 6 oil deliveries soon and you DEFINITELY need to work with an experienced partner to prepare your burner for the new fuel type.  Call your Account Manager at The Metro Group today to schedule a site assessment and let’s get your boiler system converted to No. 2 oil natural gas!
