Price Protection

Optional Price Cap to Protect Your Heating Oil Price

Scott Williams gives you the option of protecting the price you pay for heating oil and further controlling your winter fuels payments. That’s especially important during times when prices are volatile.

An enrollment fee will be charged for the upside and downside protection of the EZ Pay with Price Cap option. When we set a price cap, we must buy “call options,” which are a kind of insurance for the protection of a price cap.

Understanding the price cap fee

We need to charge a fee for this insurance because our suppliers charge us a premium for purchasing flexibility. At a certain price point, holding a call option lets us trade back the fuel we contracted for at a higher price and exchange it for lower priced fuel. This allows us to drop your price. 

We make no money from this price cap fee. We are simply passing along our cost.

How to qualify for a price cap

If you like the security of a price cap—knowing that your cost for heating oil can’t rise above a certain price no matter what happens, and that if prices come down, your price will too—we’re sure you’ll want to join our EZ Pay with Price Cap program during the enrollment period. Contact us today to inquire about this opportunity.

Please note: The price protection program is only available to customers who get automatic deliveries and are enrolled in EZ Pay, our monthly payment plan.
