Our Discount Fuel Program

How our Group Buying Works to Save you Money

OTEA combines its members fuel requirements, and then negotiates a volume buy with a number of fuel dealers covering New Hampshire, most of Maine and Vermont and much of Massachusetts.

We then notify the members who have signed up for that round of bidding. You choose to accept the fuel company and prices or reject it. If you accept it, you then work with the fuel dealer as you would normally. You pay the dealer directly for fuel, not Our Town Energy Alliance. 

We may have several bids annually. The first bid is often the lowest; prices get higher as we get in to the heating season. If you miss the first deadline, it's not too late to join but prices may be higher. Be proactive, sign up early. Be aware dues must be paid when we go to bid  or you may miss out.

The only DIFFERENCE is the price you pay!!!

Add your fuel to our 15 million plus gallons; Help us get even better prices.

Some people think our program is “too good to be true”. Check out our testimonials from existing members.  Repeat members since 1999 who were good enough to provide their thoughts and email addresses to us and the public.
