Delta Liquid Energy wants to help you save money, especially amid the challenges presented by today’s economy. Not only can simply switching to propane provide big savings, once you have made that switch, DLE offers a variety of plans to meet your financial and propane needs. Additionally, because propane is becoming more widely recognized as a cleaner-burning, low carbon fuel, there may be new tax incentives to encourage propane usage. Contact your local DLE sales representative today.

Let DLE help you SAVE MONEY this year: Sign up for the Pre-Buy Program today!

Often, the price of propane is highest in the colder, winter months. To offset this, each year Delta Liquid Energy offers our customers the opportunity to purchase their estimated winter gallons during the summer months. This allows DLE customers to take advantage of typically lower summer prices and potential big savings if the price of propane peaks in the winter.

How does the Delta Liquid Energy Pre-Buy Program work?

During the early summer months, typically April through June, DLE negotiates with our suppliers to receive a price for propane requirements that will be used the following winter. We then offer our customers a summer price for gallons that will be used the following winter. This price is predetermined based on several factors including the inventory levels of propane around the country. DLE customers sign up during the spring and early summer for the program and the gallons are delivered in the winter months.

Your local DLE office can help you determine how many gallons you may need to pre-purchase based on your propane use during previous years. Alleviate any worry about potentially high winter season propane prices and SIGN UP TODAY! Call your local sales representative.

What will my cost of propane be if I choose the Pre-Buy Program?

Your price per gallon of propane will vary each pre-buy season depending on many factors, including but not limited to, the price that Delta Liquid Energy is offered from our wholesale suppliers and inventory levels around the country. The great news is that 90% of the time, the pre-buy price offered is lower than the price in the winter months that follow. Unfortunately, it cannot be guaranteed to be a lower price simply because unforeseen circumstances of unseasonably high temperatures have been known to occur, dragging down the winter price of propane. Think of pre-buying your winter gallons this summer like an insurance plan – you might not always need to buy them, but when history has proven that typical winter propane prices go soaring, you’ll be glad you did. 

When can I start Purchasing Pre-Buy gallons?

Pre-Buy gallons may be purchased starting in late March or early April, depending on when DLE receives our price from our wholesale suppliers. We encourage you to continually check in with your local DLE office to find out the finalized start date each year. We will also keep you informed once a start date has been finalized. Pre-buy sign up forms are accepted through early July. Similar to the pre-buy application start date, the actual end date will vary each year depending on when the first of July falls during our regular business week of Monday through Friday. Typically, the pre-buy program will start within the first five days of April and end near or around the first of July.

How do I pay for my Pre-Buy gallons?

Delta Liquid Energy offers our customers flexible options when it comes to paying for your pre-buy gallons. You may opt for one lump sum payment to be paid in full on or before a specified date at the beginning of August. This date will also vary year to year. We also offer a NO INTEREST monthly payment plan for your pre-buy gallons. This payment plan requires a $25.00 set up fee and eight (8) consecutive monthly payments. We will require a credit card number to keep on file for automatic payments. Our monthly payment plan will start on the same date the timeline for pre-buy applications expires.  

When will my Pre-Buy gallons be delivered?

Once pre-buy propane gallons have been purchased, they will be applied to deliveries starting in October of that same year. Pre-buy gallons will be applied to deliveries through the winter either until all your pre-buy gallons have been used or until the end of March of the following year, whichever comes first.

How do I sign up to SAVE with DLE’s Pre-Buy Program?

Signing up is simple! Please call your local Delta Liquid Energy office to receive an agreement. Once your application has been approved and you’ve chosen your payment plan all that’s left to do is to enjoy the ease of mind that your price for propane this winter will be fixed.

Our exclusive vMeter Program provides consumers to pay for their propane each month based upon our estimate of the amount you used for that month. Estimates are based upon our predictive software which continually updates using information gathered from your usage and when actual deliveries are made to the tank. On the anniversary of your service each year, we compare the actual deliveries made to the tank through the state approved measuring device with the actual gallons billed. Depending upon this account reconciliation, the consumer may be billed for the difference (if any) or we may provide the consumer with a credit (if any) on their account, which would be applied to any outstanding balances or their next monthly bill. Getting started is easy and only requires an initial start up fee of $99.00 and your good credit. All vMeter consumers are required to have a credit card on file and our permission to process all monthly billing statements.
