What is a Co-op?

A co-operative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and or cultural needs.

What do we value?

Citizen’s Oil Co-op is based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and solidarity. In the tradition of its founders, co-operative members are encouraged to believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.

What are our principles?

These are the guidelines by which we put our values into practice.

  1. Voluntary and Open Membership
    Citizen’s Oil Co-op is open to all persons able to use our services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.
  2. Education and Information
    The Co-op provides education and information to our members to empower them to make the best possible choice for the services they are looking to utilize in the areas of heat and utilities.
  3. Concern for Community
    The Co-op works for the sustainable development of their communities through policies and programs that help to save individuals money and support the communities in which they live.

We are so very happy to be members and to receive the benefit of reduced per gallon cost of home heating oil. pop over to this site The amount we save is very useful toward other expenses. We are grateful for learning of this program and will continue to share the program with others as we continue our membership.

"I actually had a really good experience with Bearingstar. They were able to save me a few hundred bucks a year compared to my old insurance company which I was surprised about because my old insurance was by far the cheapest I could find just a year ago. view publisher site They were very pleasant and easy to work with and yet they weren't pushy. great site "

I'm saving cash on oil and electricity with the co-op and in times like this, that keeps me warm and happy! I've been using them for three seasons. If you heat with oil, they can save you money. Their site usually shows their average price, which varies based on current wholesale pricing in Connecticut.

Clara K. of Rocky Hill just turned 100 years old in August of 2015. She's been with the Co-op since 2006 and says, "I've done a good job telling others about the Co-op. https://riwaqalazhar.com " She is the first Centurion in the Co-op, that we know of, and to celebrate her 100 years we not only made her a lifetime member but refunded all of her dues that she had paid over the years. visitlcvalley.com Congratulations to Clara!
