The Somerset Community Oil Scheme reduces the cost of your domestic heating oil each time you place an order. By combining the orders from all the scheme members from Somerset, as well as those from sister-schemes in Devon, West of England & Wiltshire, and buying in bulk together members save money on their heating oil and help combat fuel poverty.

A 12-month membership of the scheme is just ?20 for domestic users, ?30 for community organisations and ?100 for businesses, and will allow you to order for as many of our monthly order deadlines as you need.

We currently have 11 local community coordinators and more than 400 members. Over the last three months we have made the following savings in pence per litre (ppl).

August 2012 - Member Price: 54.60ppl (Saving 3.60ppl)

September 2012 - Member Price: 59.65ppl (Saving 3.11ppl)

October 2012 - Member Price: 57.60ppl

(Saving 4.40ppl)

Since the start of the scheme in September 2011 our members have saved a massive ?21,839.34, 8.1% of the total cost! On average we have saved our members 4.72 pence per litre.

why do the oil companies only deliver min 500 ltres. I used less than this in a year as there are only 2 adults in our household. Having to pay out over ?300 in one shot is very expensive for me. Does anyone know if there are any oil companies out there that do like 3 runs a year?? or am i just dreaming

regards

In Spaxton, near Bridgwater, we have a consortium that bulk buys oil four or five times a year. Each member is billed direct by the supplier and is responsible for their own bill. The group buys about 30 -40000 litres at a time and we save about 5 pence a litre. Miinimum order is 500 litres.

The consortium has been in operation for several years and is seen as being very successful. Maybe if several such groups got together and consolidated their orders to say 100,000 litres we could achieve an even bigger discount.

Can anyone tell me if there's an oil buying consortium in Kent, near Ashford? It's not just for price, it's for reliability. I've been waiting 3 weeks for a delivery and just been let down again. Now I have to go stay with a friend as the oil has run out. There are only 2 other suppliers using baby tankers and the earliest they can deliver is a month away.

@Jeremy Cole. Jeremy strongly advise you not to use BWOC as an acroynm as it is trademarked by BWOC Ltd a large bulk oil distribution company. They are at http://www.bwoc.co.uk. Don't want to see a good intentioned buying club falling foul of the law.

I wish to bring to your attention a new website 'theheatingoilclub.co.uk/'It seems competetive and is free to join I can't find any complaints anywhere on the net. Has anyone had any dealings with this company?
Reply

Hello Neil. Not sure if you are aware we launched The heating oil club in Feb last year after having run our local village heating oil buying group for close to 30 years. Hope you continue to find "No Complaints" as we try to make the process as easy for members as possible. we will try to answer any questions.

Regards

Please can you add my oil brokerage website to your list. independent, unlike others recently in the press. Not owned by an oil supplier. Aims to beat other quotes, or don't buy! Sets up village consortiums.

Barton Ward Oil Club (BWOC). 4 villages near Cambridge buy together. 360,000 l per year. Rebate to the village based on litres bought. Barton, Coton, Madingley and Granchster
