Consider Budgeting Your Fuel Costs for the 2020-2021 Heating Season
with a DOC Budget Cap Plan
There is no telling what mother nature has in store for us this coming winter! Will we see an unusually mild heating season, or are we in for a typical cold Maine winter? Either way, you can keep your home heating costs manageable with a heating oil or propane DOC budget cap plan.
How does the DOC Budget Cap plan help make fuel costs manageable?
Ninety percent of your annual fuel consumption is spent during the colder heating season (November – April). This means the heating fuel bills you receive during the colder months are typically higher than the other months in the year.
Say goodbye to surprising bills! By choosing DOC’s Budget Cap Plan, we will take your estimated annual
gallons, multiply these with the capped price, add a downside protection fee, and divide that figure over the course of 11 months to determine your monthly payment.* This way, you will pay a fixed amount monthly, making it easier to budget for other family expenses.
What is downside protection?
Downside protection assures that If prices rise, you will be capped at the set price, yet if prices fall below the capped price at the time of delivery, you will be billed at the lower price.
How do I enroll?
Enrolling is easy. Call your local DOC Home Comfort Center to see if you qualify. If you are not a current customer, simply fill out the Become a Customer Form and indicate that you would like to be considered for the Winter Cap plan.
