Fuel Purchasing Plans


Price Protection Delivers Certainty

Energy prices can rise and fall sharply in this economy, causing consumers to pay more than necessary for oil heat. Falconi Energy takes the uncertainty out of fuel buying with price protection programs that lock out uncertainty. You can choose between a "capped price" that won’t increase but can decrease, and a "fixed price" that will not increase or decrease.

Our most complete price protection program, ValueShield, combines a capped price with a monthly payment plan for the ultimate option in protection and convenience. ValueShield customer can also save $0.05 on each and every gallon just by paying on time by cash, check, credit card, or save $0.10 by ACH (automatic debit).

A Two-Way Commitment

Price protection is a two-way binding commitment. Falconi Energy honors our prices, regardless of how high they go. At the same time, the customer agrees to purchase all the oil we have purchased for them. Our suppliers expect us to uphold our purchase commitments, and we ask the same of our customers. Please use this page to guide you in choosing a plan. You'll find each buying option explained, complete with its honest pros and cons.

The Maximum Capped Price program offers the same capped price protection that the ValueShield program delivers. The price never exceeds the predetermined cap amount, and you pay either the cap price or the market price - whichever is lower at the time of delivery. Where ValueShield includes the convenience of even monthly payments, Maximum Capped Price customers are billed for each delivery as it is made. Falconi Energy makes paying for these deliveries easy by accepting both credit cards and ACH payments.

Pros:

  • You are completely sheltered from rising fuel prices.
  • Your price will never exceed the cap price.
  • You benefit from price decreases as they occur.

Cons:

  • There is a program fee to cover the cost of price insurance.

The Fixed Price program offers a simple way to lock out higher prices. We guarantee your price for the number of gallons you want to protect. Your price will neither increase nor decrease during the life of the contract, and you will be completely sheltered from higher prices during the contract period, no matter how high oil prices may go. Unlike some programs we offer, however, Fixed Price does not allow your price to drop if the market price should go down. To combine price protection with access to falling prices, please choose one of our capped-price programs. Payment under the Fixed Price program is on a per-delivery basis or a monthly budget plan. Falconi Energy makes paying your bills easy by accepting both ACH and credit card payments.

Pros:

  • You are completely sheltered from price increases.
  • Your price will never exceed the fixed price.
  • The program has no enrollment fee.

Cons:

  • Your price will not decrease below the fixed price.

Pre-Buy locks out increasing prices and settles your oil heat account in advance. You lock in the price for some or all of your annual supply before the season and make a one-time payment. We deliver whenever your supply is running low, but you will see no more bills for oil while your pre-purchased volume lasts. You are completely protected against price increases, no matter how high they may go, but you have no access to falling prices. To combine price protection with access to lower prices, please choose one of our capped-price programs. To make paying your bill easy, Falconi Energy accepts both ACH and credit card payments.

Pros:

  • You are completely sheltered from price increases.
  • The program has no enrollment fee.
  • Your costs are paid before the heating season begins.

Cons:

  • Your price will not decrease below the fixed price.

Market Price offers no price protection. Instead, you pay our listed price for each delivery. Our prices are competitive relative to other dealers, but we cannot avoid price fluctuation due to market conditions in our daily price. Customers who want to eliminate the risk of higher prices will prefer one of our fixed-price or capped-price programs.

Pros:

  • This program offers no fees.
  • If prices are lower when you purchase your oil, you will receive the lower price; you are not locked into any set price.

Cons:

  • If prices are higher when you purchase your oil, you will receive the higher price; you are not protected from price increases.
