Tradition and History

Everyone was struggling in the Great Depression Era. The year was 1932 and Daniel F. Richard saw a need within his own family and the community around him where he could help. And in that instant a family business was born out of the homestead.

All of the Richard family was involved in making this a success. Daniel F. delivered the fuel, while his wife Armandé took care of the bookkeeping and the children.

When the boys, Normand, Raymond and Robert were old enough to help deliver the fuel and hand Dad the tools he needed, they went to work. Anita began working in the office when she was old enough.

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

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 and Raymond in the office daily.

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