With nearly a third of households in Stratford on Avon District being off the mains gas network, saving on heating costs is a particular concern for people living and working in rural Warwickshire (District Council’s Home Energy Conservation Act Report 2017). Domestic heating is usually more expensive in rural areas as housing tends to be older and less energy-efficient and so fuel poverty is generally higher.
So in 2012 we set up our own Energy buying syndicate to create collective purchasing power and keep prices at an affordable level for users. Membership is open to all in Warwickshire – whether you’re an individual householder, a community group or a business – and it’s free to join.
You’ll be pleased to hear that saving on heating costs can add up significantly, too. Over the past 5 years we’ve ordered over 3.5 million litres of kerosene and saved members over £180,000 against average prices quoted – and a huge £380,000 against the maximum prices quoted by local suppliers!
And by helping suppliers to plan and deliver orders more efficiently, we’re saving oil miles and doing our bit to reduce carbon footprint locally, too.
If you’ve got any questions or would like more information, call Sharn on 01789 472619.
How It Works
Members can place monthly orders via our site. The minimum order amount is 500 litres and each order helps to increase our negotiating power, saving on heating costs for all our customers. Orders must be placed before 12 noon on the deadline date and, once submitted, are regarded as being binding.
Become a Member
From September 2017, we’ve abolished membership fees, which is a further incentive to join our syndicate. And you can leave us to deal with the hassle of price negotiations as well.
LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) Orders
We have an arrangement with Swift Energy Consultants Limited, one of the market suppliers, so you can also make savings on LPG orders (bulk and cylinders)
