The Promise Plan: A Level Payment Program
No one ever wants to deal with extremely large fuel bills, especially during those long cold winters. The experts at Tri Gas & Oil, your local fuels provider, understand how much of a burden, financial or otherwise, that can be. That is why we are proud to offer a level payment program tailored to your unique needs and will relieve the stress of bulky winter fuel bills. We call it the Promise Plan and it allows you to spread out your annual fuel costs over one year. Whether you use propane, heating oil, or kerosene to keep your home warm, the Promise Plan is here to help you not feel the financial strain of large winter fuel bills.
How The Promise Plan Works
- Our expert staff will estimate your annual fuel costs based on your past usage (for new customers, we base the annual usage on the size of your tank and what you use your fuel for).
- We then divide that total amount into 11 level monthly payments. The 12th month is referred to as a “catch-up” month, which means you will pay the difference if you use more than your estimated amount of fuel. If you use less than the estimated amount of fuel, you will have a credit on your account.
- What all of that means is that you will pay the same amount each month during the Promise Plan year, no matter how cold the weather gets. We definitely say it is a WIN-WIN to use our Promise Plan.
Additional Promise Plan Benefits
There are other benefits in enrolling in the Promise Plan from Tri Gas & Oil. You will receive a 3% rebate calculated monthly for any credit balance on your account during your enrollment period. Automatic Delivery is included in your Promise Plan, so you never have to worry about “running out”. The professionals at Tri Gas & Oil will gauge when it is time to refill your tank based on a formula that includes what appliances you use, what the weather is like and more. Our “No Run Out” guarantee is there to give you the peace of mind that you deserve. If we accidentally let you run of fuel, you can rely on us to make a delivery and give your account a credit of $100*.
*$100 credit is only available to Promise Plan customers. Non-Promise Plan Automatic Delivery customers receive a $50 account credit if we accidentally let you run out of fuel.
With the addition of Price Protection, you will be able to protect your annual per gallon price with a price cap (for a nominal fee). That means your price per gallon never will go above the set price cap during the time you are in the plan. If the fuel prices drop below the capped price then you will pay the lower rate. You will have both upside and downside protection. You can add Price Protection whether or not you are enrolled in the Promise Plan*. Be sure to ask our team at Tri Gas & Oil about Price Protection and how it can benefit your fuel account
*For Promise Plan customers, the price cap applies to the total number of gallons estimated for the current plan period. Any fuel purchased beyond the total number of gallons estimated will be billed at the market price on the date of delivery. The annual cap fee will be rolled into your monthly Promise Plan payments. For non-Promise Plan customers, your price cap fee will be billed up front for the annual period.
Pre-Buy Your Fuel
This option allows you to purchase a specific quantity of gallons for the year at a discounted rate. If you use more gallons than you have purchased, you will have to pay the market price for those gallons over the purchased pre-buy gallons. If you use fewer gallons than you bought, those leftover gallons will not carry over to the following year. However, the dollar value for those gallons can either be applied to future purchases or refunded to you.
