Dear Putnam Valley Residents,
The Putnam Valley Heating Oil Program is a new initiative for the Town Board, intended to save you money on the increased cost of heating your home this winter. This is a totally voluntary program, in which all home owners may join the oil plan and pay a one-time fee of $5.00 to become a member.
Members will be able to purchase oil at a discount, through our co-op program. The cost will be no more than 40 cents per gallon above the wholesale cost of our local distributors and an average of approximately 20 cents per gallon less than the homeowner can obtain. The price will fluctuate with the market but should be better than the current retail price.
You choose among any of the participating companies and change distributors by simply calling another company. This program has two additional advantages. First, some companies may offer discounts on their annual heating maintenance service contracts to our members. Second, energy audits, designed to enable you to consume less oil and save you even more money, may be available as well.
The details of this plan, available to all residential homeowners in the town of Putnam Valley are provided in our Frequently Asked Questions section and should answer almost all of your questions. In addition, you may download a brochure which contains all of this information and the program application. The downloadable brochure is a PDF file and requires Adobe Acrobat Reader 7.0 or higher to view it.
We invite you to join this exciting plan. Your Town government is committed to helping you save money – and helping you stay warm.
