About Us

Tradition and History

In the Great Depression Era everyone was struggling. In 1932 Daniel F. Richard saw a need within his own family and the community around him where he could help, he did just that. And in that instant a family heating oil business was born.

All the Richard family were involved in making this home business a success. Daniel F. delivered the fuel while his wife Armande’ took care of the bookkeeping and the children.

When the boys, Normand, Raymond and Robert were old enough they went to work helping their Dad delivering the fuel and handing him the tools he needed when making repairs. When she was old enough, Anita began working in the office.

Over the many years, D. F. Richard Energy has consistently grown to meet the ever-changing needs and demands of customers in southern Maine and the seacoast of New Hampshire. From propane gas to Bioheat® oil and complete heating and cooling systems, more and more customers have come to rely on us.

It is a true family business with a focus on exceptional customer service, reasonable prices and premier products and services. To this day, you will find Robert in the office daily where he sees his children and several of his nephews and his niece.

D.F. Richard Energy continues to be an integral part in all the communities it serves and supports.
