Our Smart Choice Plan for Energy Co-op of Vermont Members

Our Smart Choice plan makes things easy for you. We spread your oil payments throughout the year and guarantee that the price you pay won't go above our cap. More than 200 Co-op members sign up for our Smart Choice plan each year and receive these benefits:

How cap prices work
How cap prices work
  • Protection from high oil prices. Future heating oil prices may be higher or lower than where they are now. With our Smart Choice plan you don't have to worry about that. Each time we deliver your oil you will be charged our daily price or our cap price - whichever is lower. During the season you'll never pay more than our cap price. Our suppliers charge us a fee for price protection and we pass the cost onto you.
  • No big winter oil bills. Sign up for our Smart Choice plan and you make the same monthly payments year round - even if you get two winter deliveries in the same month.
  • Easier automatic deliveries. Now you don't have to worry about getting a delivery at an inconvenient time. It won't affect when or what you pay that month. And if you still call for your deliveries, now is the time to switch to automatic deliveries - no more worrying about running out of fuel or checking the tank.
  • Convenient automatic monthly payments. Use your credit card or electronic funds transfer from your bank account. Of course, you may also pay by cash or check - whatever works best for you.

Our Smart Choice plan is available from July through October each year. Click here for our current cap price and to enroll.
