Make Your Winter Energy Costs Easier

P. Gagnon’s SimplePay and price protection plans can help you do just that

fuel payments maineThis has been a stressful year when it comes to the cost of living. Groceries, clothes, gas for the car, the price for everything has been on a roller coaster.

That has also held true for the cost of propane and heating oil and has many of our customers worried as they head into heating season this coming winter. Fortunately, P. Gagnon & Son is here to help with pricing and payment options that can cut your winter heating bills by up to 50%!

SimplePay: Make paying your bills simple!

The SimplePay monthly budget program is available for both heating oil and propane.

Here’s how it works: Your heating oil or propane costs are spread out over 12 easy, affordable, even monthly payments. Rather than being hit with four or five large bills at once in the fall and winter, when a single delivery might cost $850 or more, you’d spread your payments out evenly over 2023. You know exactly what you’ll need to pay in advance. Even if it’s extremely cold and you have two deliveries each month, you’ll just pay the regular payment.

Not only does SimplePay make your winter payments easier, but it also makes managing your household expenses easier. Because you know how much you’ll be paying each month, you will be better able to plan your monthly household budget.

Price protection: Keep your costs under control!

P. Gagnon & Son offers multiple options when it comes to controlling the price you pay for heating oil and propane.

Customers who enrolled last year in price protection plans saved money last heating season because they had their fuel pricing set before big inflation spikes and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Let’s run through each plan so you can determine which one is right for you.

SimplePay/Price Cap: No matter what direction oil prices go, you’re protected. Plus, your heating oil bills are divided into 12 smaller payments so they’re more manageable.

PrePay/Price Cap: Write one check to us and you’re done paying heating oil bills for the winter! You’ll pay the market rate on the day you enroll or your capped price, whichever is lower.

Flex Plan: If you don’t want to enroll in a price protection plan but still want to save money, Flex Plan is for you! Pay for your heating oil up front for the whole season and you’ll receive a 25-cent discount from our posted price.

Fixed Price: Lock in your heating oil or propane price per gallon ahead of heating season and your price will not change, no matter what.
