Home heating oil
Northern Ireland remains reliant on expensive home-heating. More than two-thirds (about 68%) of households are dependent on oil as their main heat source.
The cheapest way to buy oil is in bulk (for example 500 litres). Many find it difficult to budget for these large one-off bulk deliveries. Larger orders are a higher one-off cost, but smaller orders cost more per litre. Buyers often have no option but to place these smaller, more expensive orders.
Joining a local Oil Buying Club is one solution to this problem.
What's an oil club?
Oil Buying Clubs are based on a simple idea - the more people that buy oil together, the lower the cost. You can buy as little as 200 litres of oil. When all club member orders are put together, the Club can get a better price.
The savings made are passed on to everyone. The more people that take part, the greater the savings. When you order your oil through NI Energy Advice Oil Buying Clubs, we take care of all aspects of the delivery.
We liaise with the supplier to ensure you receive your oil. We provide monthly advice on oil costs and the best time to buy heating oil. We have worked in partnership with Bryson Energy to establish a network of Oil Buying Clubs in Northern Ireland.
