“Vermont-based Cota & Cota Heating Fuel was founded in 1941. The business was run out of one of the first 24-hour gas stations in the state. Years of hard work and perseverance have paid off, and today Cota & Cota is at the forefront of the heating industry, serving thousands of customers throughout Vermont & New Hampshire.


Cota & Cota has remained a leader by offering great service and continuing to expand their product offerings. Cota & Cota recently completed a state-of-the-art underground petroleum and propane bulk facility in Jamaica, VT. They called on the years of experience of the team of professionals at Highland Tank to provide the highest quality tanks on the market and service from the time of the project quotation until everything was installed and running.

The new facility will help Cota & Cota stay ahead of their competition. In addition to providing a new distribution facility for home and business deliveries, the well-known heating fuel supplier is now offering gasoline and diesel 24 hours a day with this newest Key Club fueling station.”

Help Your Neighbor – Pay It Forward




Ken Cota – Gift of Warmth


(Pictured above: Casey Cota sharing the Ken Cota Gift of Warmth story)

We enjoy attending the Brattleboro Chamber of Commerce Holiday Mixer every year. It is a wonderful way for local businesses and organizations to celebrate the holidays while meeting others who are also working hard to better their community. We like to take this occasion every year to give away 200 gallons of heating fuel in honor of Ken Cota.

Our long standing family tradition is to “Pay it Forward”, especially during the holidays which can be a struggle for many. The Gift of Warmth is awarded to a chamber member who then needs to select a family or organization in their community who may be facing challenges and just needs a little help to make it through the winter and overcome those challenges.

This year we would like congratulate Sabine Rhyne from the Brattleboro Food Co-op!

In the spirit of “Paying it Forward”, Sabine is now responsible for finding someone who could use a little extra help this winter to pass the fuel along to.

Do you know someone who could use the extra help? Listen to 96.7 WTSA FM in Brattleboro, or 953 and 1071 The Wolf in the Upper Valley to find out how to nominate someone to receive 100 gallons of fuel!

Last year a caring community member called in and offered to donate another 100 gallons of fuel!

Spring Into Health with Grace Cottage Hospital

Despite the cold temperatures there was a great turnout for both the main 5k run and the children fun run on the green afterwards. Dave Moore from the Jamaica office took part in the race while Shari Yates from the Bellows Falls office cheered on runners at the finish line and provided cold water with Cota & Cota beverage cups for refreshment.

We are always thrilled to support organizations like Grace Cottage Hospital that make such a difference for families in our community.

As we head into March many of us are holding our collective breaths hoping that there will be no more snow! Oh sure, it was pretty back in December, but enough already!

To get everyone thinking spring, we are running a “melt into spring” contest for several of our locations.

Winners will receive a $25 gift card to a local business and have some fun tracking photo updates and seeing all the great guesses. Join your family and friends for the fun and check out our Cota & Cota Facebook page to enter. Good Luck and Happy Spring!

State of the Art Drinking Fountain for Kurn Hattin

Over the Christmas Break, the plumbing elves at Cota & Cota were busy inside the Kurn Hattin Homes gymnasium. The Cota plumbing team donated and installed a state of the art drinking fountain and bottle filling station for the children to use during gym class and athletic events. This station delivers a quick, clean water bottle fill and enhances sustainability by minimizing dependency on disposable plastic bottles.

Casey Cota, President of Cota & Cota, inc. has coached some of the Kurn Hattin children in basketball and saw that the old water fountain was outdated. He felt that this would be a great benefit to the students and staff at Kurn Hattin Homes as well as helping reduce waste on campus.

Connie Sanderson, Executive Director of Kurn Hattin Homes said that they are very appreciative of the Cota contribution to Kurn Hattin. This new drinking fountain not only is very useful but the Cota team also placed it in a location that is more accessible than the old fountain.

Kurn Hattin provides a safe home and nurturing environment where boys and girls from disadvantaged backgrounds or adverse family circumstances can live, learn, grow and thrive while their families get the support and help they need. Our aim is to work with the whole family with a view to reunite children with their parents.
