Especially after last winter, all of us here at Yankee Propane wanted to afford our valued customers some options to assist them with controlling their propane costs. Accordingly, we will be offering some new programs and making some positive changes on existing ones.
Pre Buy ProgramThe best value from a propane cost standpoint. You would pre pay your propane cost based on your expected winter usage affording you the best price available at the time. We in turn would purchase a fixed wholesale contract to protect/lock in your price for the contract period. During the contract period you would receive statements showing your actual usage versus your remaining credit balance.
Fixed Price Budget ProgramA new program that affords our customers the benefits of equal payments while at the same time locking in their propane price. In this case you would make 11 equal payments based on your expected winter usage. As in the Pre Buy Program we would purchase a fixed wholesale contract to protect/lock in your price. During the contract period you would receive statements showing your actual usage versus your remaining credit or debit balance. Budget Propane customers do not receive a monthly invoice for their budget payments which are due on the 15th of every month through the contract period.
The following chart should give you an idea of the pricing trend and potential savings through taking advantage of one of our fixed price programs.
There is potential risk with locking in your price if the propane wholesale market goes against historical trends and decreases during the winter months. In that case you would still have the contractual obligations since we would have purchased the fixed price propane contracts on your behalf. Any contracted gallons remaining at the end of the contract period will be carried over to the next year's program.
To take advantage of either of these programs you must be an automatic delivery customer in addition to having no outstanding balance at the time of signing up.
If you wish to participate in either of these programs, please fill out and return the appropriate attached form along with a check or credit card information by August 15th 2014. If you participate in the Fixed Price Budget Program you can make your future payments online at www.yankeepropane.com
