Ceiling Cap Plan

Heating Oil Ceiling Cap Plan

Protect yourself from rising prices this year

As you may know, the price of heating oil fluctuates on a daily basis because of supply and demand, market speculation, weather, geopolitical conflicts and other influences beyond our control. This is reflected in the prices we charge our customers upon delivery.

What you may not know, however, is that we offer you a way to put a ceiling, or cap, on your heating oil. This could save you a lot of money on fuel during the winter.

If oil prices skyrocket, your price will never go above the cap. But if prices fall for a sustained period, so will yours. When our daily rate stays below the cap, we will charge you the lower amount.

We call this our Ceiling Cap Plan. It is easy to enroll and there are no cancellation fees.

Please note, however, that our suppliers charge us a hefty premium for this type of price protection. So if you choose the price cap option, a per-gallon cap fee will be due when you sign your contract. We do not make money on this fee. We simply pass the cost on to you.

Another option: fix your price ahead of winter

Some customers prefer to lock in their price at one fixed rate during the heating season and avoid paying any premiums for “downside protection.” Learn more about our Pre-buy Plan here.

Enroll in our budget plan for lower monthly payments

Another way to control your winter heating costs is with our budget plan, which spreads your fuel costs into equal, predictable payments for 12 months. This makes your winter heating payments much lower and more manageable.
