Budget Payment Plan

Heating bills that are predictable and manageable

With energy prices higher than ever, fitting a propane bill into your monthly budget can be a challenge – especially in the winter, when fuel deliveries and holiday spending are more frequent. For this reason, we offer our Budget Payment Plan.

The Budget Payment Plan spreads out your annual propane costs into even monthly payments so that every payment is easy and manageable. Payments can be made via check, debit card or credit card. We also offer automatic payments through your credit card or fund transfer from your bank.

*Anyone not on a Stanford LP Gas Price Protection Plan will receive market rate pricing.


How does it benefit me?   PROGRAM DISCONTINUED

You control when your next years fuel is purchased. In the past we have made purchases in the off season and hoped it would be at a lower rate. If you think the energy market will move to your advantage, you control when to purchase your fuel.

How much can I buy?

A minimum of 200 gallons per purchase. A maximum of your average yearly usage.

What does it cost?

There is no cost to you. We do require a .20 cent per gallon down payment. This down payment will be applied to your fuel purchase.



How many purchases can I make?

As many as you want. Prices will be blended together and sold to you as an average price.

If you make several different purchases, each at a different price the purchases will be blended together to give you a selling price for the year.

We will post the price every Monday at 12:00 noon. It will remain until the following Monday. If the price goes up or down your guess is a good as ours.
