Updated August 26, 2022
We have negotiated agreements with KoscoHeritage/HopEnergy and Paraco Gas for the 2022-2023 heating season. They distribute propane, fuel oil and kerosene in Ulster, Dutchess, Orange, Sullivan, Greene and Columbia counties in NYS.
In order to take advantage of the discounted prices you need to become a member of the co-op each year. If you are not yet a member (the non-refundable membership fee is $10) please go to the QandA page of this website to find out how to apply for membership. Once you are a member you need to enter a contract for propane, fuel oil or kerosene with our suppliers through your account page on our website
Members can sign a contract with our suppliers until August 31st, 2022. No contract applications will be accepted after August 31st. Please read our Frequently Asked Questions before contacting your supplier(s) as it will make the process easier. Below are membership prices for home heating oil, kerosene and propane gas.
The extraordinary continuing volatility of the market has made this season different, and we are grateful to our negotiating team and our partners at KoscoHeritage/Hop Energy for their patience and perseverance. We feel that the price structure this year will still give our members a choice of prices that will be difficult to match. For example, as of this writing, NYSERDA (NYS Energy Research & Development Authority) quotes average home heating oil prices this week in this region at $4.94/gallon.
Please read this carefully as well as our QandA webpage before calling either the co-op or KoscoHeritage with questions, as we expect a high volume of calls to both. If you do call or email please allow 2-3 working days for a response. Most answers to your questions will be found on the QandA webpage.
Sign up period for home heating oil is August 1st through August 31st, 2022. No applications will be accepted after midnight on August 31st 2022.
Your contract with KoscoHeritage/HopEnergy runs from the date of signing through May 31st 2023
Because of the volatility of the market during the August sign up period the prices may change each Friday for the following seven days. Kosco will change the prices at close of business on Friday. Please note that the fixed price you will pay or cap you will get is the one quoted in the contract you sign. The prices listed below are valid from Friday 8/26/22 through Wednesday 8/31/22.
All members will be required to be on automatic delivery.
All members (except those opting for the Variable/Floating Price) will need to specify the number of gallons they require for the season. Members are expected to order only the number of gallons that they reasonably expect to use during the 2022-2023 heating season, normally limited to 110% of what they used the previous heating season. Please review “Estimating Usage” in our QandA webpage before estimating your gallons.
This year’s prices are based on the latest posted Average Newburgh Rack (ANR) price. This is the price paid at the Newburgh Rack where KoscoHeritage collects and pays for their product. On their sign up page KoscoHeritage posts the current fixed price and cap that they are offering co-op members, this may change on Friday at close of business. Please note that the fixed price you will pay or cap you will get is the one quoted in the contract you sign. Please read your contract carefully including the Terms and Conditions.
You can view the daily ANR price by clicking here . After August 31st KoscoHeritage will make the daily ANR price available to members online or by calling to Customer Service. Please read our QandA webpage for more information about this index and how it relates to the NYMEX price on which we based co-op prices in the past.
