Home Heating Oil and Propane Buying Groups
Co-op Power uses its purchasing power to get you a better price on your home heating fuel in Western Massachusetts (Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties) in Southern Vermont, and in southwestern New Hampshire.  (In the greater Boston area, Co-op Power Boston Metro East has encouraged members to join the Massachusetts Consumer Energy Alliance's heating oil buying group.)
 If you'd like to participate in one of the buying groups below, please email Paul DeCarlo pauldecarlo@cooppower.coop and include your address, contact information, annual usage (estimate), and which group you'd like to participate in.
 
Propane Buying Group
We will be working with Amerigas again this year. Through their partnerships, they are able to cover most of Franklin County, Hampshire County, Windham County, and Cheshire County. Please note that Amerigas will cover the cost of switching from another propane dealer for those who don't own their tank.
 
Propane Buying Group Prices:
<100 gallons/year= $3.299/gallon
100-300 gallons/year= $2.899/gallon
>300 gallon/year= $2.499/gallon
This is a fixed price that will run until through March of 2014.
 
Heating Oil Buying Group
This year, we have agreements with several area dealers. You can choose which dealer to go with (as long as they cover your area) and you can choose when it makes sense for you to buy (depending on the market price and whether you'd like pre-buy, budget, or cash options).
 
Sandri Energy (Greenfield, MA) will provide a $.06 discount for each gallon purchased during the heating season from any of their programs. Sandri pays the discounts at the end of the heating season directly to the customer, usually in July. You can also get a discount of $5/ton for bulk or bagged pellets, and a $15 discount off their Premier Service Plan for your heating equipment maintenance. People on the Premier Service Plan get 15% off parts and labor.
 
Orange Oil (New Salem, MA) will provide a $.05 discount for each gallon purchased during the heating season from any of their programs. Orange Oil will apply their discount at the time of purchase.
 
Cernak Fuel (Easthampton, MA) will provide a $.06 discount for each gallon purchased during the heating season from any of their programs. They will pay their rebate at the end of the season.
