Energy Emergency Support

During petroleum emergencies, it is the responsibility of DMME’s Division of Energy to provide for the citizens of the Commonwealth in a reasonable and responsible manner as follows:

  • when disaster strikes and gasoline, home heating oil, or other petroleum fuel supply systems suddenly fail resulting in a threat to health and safety;
  • to be capable of immediate collaboration with energy providers to help direct critical supplies to priority locations and restore supply and distribution systems as soon as possible, and
  • to cooperate with the federal government to recommend, encourage, and, under extreme conditions, mandate appropriate conservation measures until market forces can reestablish a working balance between supply and demand.
