ACRE joins launch of the Buy Fuel Early campaign

ACRE in collaboration with DECC, Defra, Consumer Focus, Citizen’s Advice and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers are launching a campaign to encourage heating oil customers to buy early to avoid running out of fuel this winter.

As part of the campaign, ACRE, Citizen’s Advice and the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers have produced Best Practice for Oil Buying Groups. The publication provides practical information to help communities set up and run buying groups to save money by purchasing oil in bulk. It also features case studies from Oxfordshire RCC and Norfolk RCC and their oil buying syndicates.

DECC and Defra are supportive of the need to encourage heating oil customers to prepare now and avoid running out of fuel this winter and Citizen’s Advice are also launching web resources as part of the Buy Fuel Early campaign.
