The Community Energy Club is supporting the Buy Oil Early campaign, an initiative that encourages householders to stock up on heating oil before the winter sets in. Launched by ACRE, Citizens Advice and FPS (Federation of Petroleum Suppliers) and backed by Energy Minister Matt Hancock, the campaign draws attention to the benefits of lower prices and prompt delivery for customers who plan ahead.
“It’s better to order early when demand is low and prices are low and to make sure no household is caught out, especially in remote and rural areas, where roads can be disrupted and delivery times only increase as the weather gets worse,” explained Mr Hancock.
The Energy Minister also reiterated the growing role of oil buying groups. “If you haven’t thought about it, it’s worth looking at establishing or joining a community buying group which makes oil prices cheaper for individual households.”
