Oil Buying Club

Community Energy Club - oil buying club for Cornwall and West Devon

Just under half the homes in Cornwall are not served by the mains gas network and rely on more expensive forms of heating for their homes and hot water. By bringing together the collective buying power of users of oil fuelled heating in Cornwall we’re working to help householders across the county to access competitive prices to reduce their heating bills.

Reasons to join our club

  • Single point of contact (no ringing around suppliers)
  • Hassle free service
  • Cheaper prices, especially for customers ordering small amounts
  • Ability to place smaller, more frequent order + spread the cost = no need to risk running low in order to secure a better price for a large order
  • Regular purchase dates (and reminders!)
  • Access to other services from Community Energy Plus to help you save energy and money
