What is the scheme about?

The Community Bulk Oil Buying Scheme could reduce the cost of your domestic heating oil.  All you need to do to take advantage of the scheme is to pay an annual membership fee, which will cover as many oil orders as you need during the course of the year.

Annual membership fees

Domestic: £20            Community Building: £30            Business: £100

What’s the snag?

There isn’t one.  By bringing communities throughout Staffordshire together and making the most of joint buying power, we can make savings and pass them directly to people like you whose fuel costs are high simply because you use oil-fired central heating.

The environment benefits too!

Every time a tanker comes out to make a delivery, it is using a lot of diesel - a full tanker can get as little as a horrifying 8 miles per gallon.  If deliveries are organised so that one tanker delivers to several customers in a village instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the fuel consumption is reduced and so is traffic in the village.
