Inviting you to join the club in Ballykelly are (l-r) Hilary Canning (Housing Executive) with Jenna Coey (Bryson Energy), Michael Lyttle (Apex Housing) and current members Ciara Clarke and Kerry McGuiness.
Ballykelly Oil Club
We are working in partnership with Bryson Energy and local community groups to establish a network of oil buying clubs across Northern Ireland.
A number of clubs have already been established, the most recent in Ballykelly.  The club is being managed by Bryson Energy through Apex Housing.
The Ballykelly Oil Buying Club, funded by ourselves and managed by Bryson Energy, is open to all our tenants, housing association tenants, owner-occupiers and those who privately rent.  It’s free to join and members can expect savings between £15 and £30 on their orders.
Jennifer McClarey, of Apex Housing, is pleased they have taken on the initiative saying:
“It is a simple premise; the more people buy oil together the more we can reduce the cost.  Each month a household can buy as little oil as they need when we put all of the orders together we can agree a better price and pass on the savings to all.”
Our Energy Conservation Manager, Noel Rice, is delighted with the latest club to be founded commenting:
“The Housing Executive believes an oil buying club is an excellent way to help a household reduce the cost of oil, budget for more regular smaller deliveries and save.  I wish the Ballykelly club every success.”
Meanwhile, Raymond Gormley from Bryson Energy said:
“Oil is the main fuel for almost 70% of homes in Northern Ireland and its price remains changeable.  We are delighted with the positive response from Ballykelly and look forward to organising the first fill and the community seeing the benefits of collective oil buying.”
