Purchase your winter fuel before the season starts. Your fuel price is capped, but not locked in.

PROS:
Traditionally, this is the best way to save on fuel. Your fuel price can’t go above the cap price, but it can drop if market prices fall. And because fuel prices tend to fluctuate up and down, it protects you both ways.

CONS:
There is a fee charged by our suppliers for this two-way protection.

BEST FOR:
Customers who like to save, to keep things simple and who have the money to pay up front.

Spread your annual fuel bill for as long as 11 months.

PROS:
Cuts your winter fuel payments in half, and makes your fuel bill much more predictable. This is especially helpful during the holidays. You don’t pay for any more fuel than you actually receive. No finance charge if monthly payments are made on time. You may also spread service plan cost out under this program.

CONS:
You pay for some fuel before your first delivery, but by the end of the cycle we are waiting for payment on fuel that has already been delivered, so it balances out.

Customers who want predictability and to avoid big winter bills.
