Rice Energy is based in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The Rice company was founded in 1951 by the late Meldon F. Rice operating as a home heating oil and gasoline distribution business. The family business experienced continued growth under the direction of Meldon's son, Donald N. Rice from 1959 until 1994. Donald was succeeded by his son, Timothy S. Rice who continued on with the family's tradition of business growth generated by the belief in the strength of people committed to living by a set of core values. This commitment to living by basic values continued to be the foundation by which Rice served its' patrons.
In 2008, Rice Oil and Propane was acquired by Inergy Companies, a national energy business and to further identify as a local company operating under a national umbrella, changed the name from Rice Oil and Propane to Rice Energy in 2009.
