Proposed 2017 order dates: 27th January, 28th April, 28th July, 7th October.
Our first oil order (for over 7000 litres) was submitted in early Feb 2015 and saved a total of over £300 for syndicate members. Three further orders were made in 2015, and four in 2016, and made similar savings. So why are you waiting...?
We have now expanded our area and membership of the syndicate is also open to residents of Talybont, Borth and Eglwysfach/Ffwrnais
Club Cosy was recently launched by Cyngor Ceredigion. It aims to help people with advice and practical help with household insulation and energy efficiency. One activity is to help with the creation of fuel buying syndicates. There are already 14 of these working in Ceredigion, and Cwmni Cymunedol Cletwr launched one in early 2015. The idea is that a group of people get together to negotiate bulk discounts for buying heating oil (and perhaps other things e.g. LPG). The oil is still delivered to your home, and you still pay the oil company directly. Our experience suggests that discounts of 5p+ per litre of heating oil may be possible. We also hope to work with the Ceredigion Credit Union to help people set up Fuel Budget savings accounts so that they can spread the cost over the year. A discount electricity scheme was also available in 2015, which saved up to £150 per household. This scheme will be available again in the future.
If you're interested in joining the fuel syndicate, please complete the form below. There's no obligation - whenever we put in an order you will have the option to have a delivery. We'd also like to gather a bit of information about what fuels people use and how much, so that we can get an idea of likely demand.
