Bulk heating oil discount buying scheme

As with other energy costs, prices for heating oil have varied rapidly over the past few years.

One way to get the best possible is to buy your heating oil it to be part of a community buying scheme, taking advantage of group buying discounts.

Community First Oxfordshire runs our local 'oil buying scheme', which is open to households, businesses and community organisations that use oil to heat their premises.

What it costs

CFO's rate for heating oil in April 2019 was just under 47p a litre; saving around £40 on a 1000L of oil.

An annual membership fee of £24 (households, inc. VAT), which covers as many oil orders as you need during the course of a year, covers administration costs.
