Save Money On Oil This Winter

Richmondshire residents are being encouraged to save money on their winter fuel – by signing up to a local oil co-operative.

The District Council is working with the Yorkshire Energy Partnership to help communities set up or join existing co-operatives.   The district now has a dedicated co-ordinator - Martha Holmes.

Oil buying co-operatives are an easy way to cut fuels bills and reduce the carbon footprint. If a group of neighbours join forces and buy in bulk through a local oil buying cooperative they can make savings of up to 10%. An oil co-operative will also reduce the amount of tanker journeys being made which in turn reduces the impact on the environment.

“Now the cold weather is upon us it’s the time to think about filling up the oil tanks,” said Councillor Jane Parlour.

“An oil co-operative is a great way to save money. We know of an order for over 50 properties across the district that has saved over £15 on 500 litres! The order date for pre-Christmas delivery is fast approaching, so stock up now before the snowy weather comes!”

For more information or to sign up contact Martha Holmes on01904 545020 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  The next order date is December 10 - register interest before then to place an order.
