What is it?
It's a new and unique way for us all to buy our heating oil together and enjoy the savings and benefits this provides.
How does it work?
Members place their order with a community co-ordinator. Orders must be placed by a specific date each month. Participating oil suppliers are then contacted and the best price negotiated for the bulk order. Members are then advised of estimated delivery dates.
What are the benefits?
It is free to join and by making the most of bulk buying we can make savings and pass them onto members. We can get convenient, reliable oil deliveries, saving you the time and effort of comparing price quotes from various oil suppliers.
What are the Environmental benefits?
Every time a tanker makes a delivery it uses a lot of fuel, a full tanker can get as little as 8 miles per gallon. If deliveries are organised so that one tanker delivers to several costumers in the same area instead of making lots of individual deliveries, the tanker's fuel consumption is reduced.
How much could you save?
Similar schemes operating in Northern Ireland are saving their members between 3 and 6 pence per litre so for a 500 litre delivery you could potentially save between £15 and £30.
Who the scheme applies to?
Two pilot schemes are being carried out - in the Cregagh area (East Belfast) and in the Ardoyne area (North Belfast).
