Within 2 1/2 years over 2000 homes have joined our Co-op. With 6 to 12 applications coming in daily we are truly a success story that has baffled the propane industry. Despite our competitors negative comments and sometimes out right lies concerning our group, the wise consumer weighs the Co-op as the smart choice. Collectively we have shown that standing together as a group has proved to be the most logical and straightforward way of controlling our fuel costs.
As we continue into our 2nd year with Ferrellgas, please remember that Ferrellgas is one of the three largest propane companies in the United States. Unlike some of the small fuel companies that sell a mixed bag of fuel (propane, oil, kerosene, diesel), Ferrellgas focuses only on propane. Last year when the smaller companies could not get propane because of the shortage, Ferrellgas, through their strategic purchasing, was providing propane to these smaller companies that had no buying power in those market conditions. Simply put, not only do Co-op members have the benefit of an exclusive discount fuel program, they also have the security in knowing that they will never be left without fuel.
We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone to remember the less fortunate this holiday season.
Happy New Year!
