Enrollment For EZ Pay Is Open!
We’ve all experienced new levels of unpredictability over the last year, so anything that can bring some stability to our day-to-day should be welcomed with open arms. While we can’t control the news cycle, one thing we can do is help make paying your fuel bill a little less complicated, thanks to our EZ Pay budget plan.
How Does EZ Pay Work?
EZ Pay gives you a way to soften the impact of fuel price spikes by spreading your heating oil bills across 12 easy monthly payments. Here’s how it works:
- We’ll look at your past bills to determine your average annual fuel usage, then multiply that number by the forecast price for fuel. From there, we just take that number and divide it into 12 easy monthly payments.
- There are no fees, service, or finance charges for EZ Pay – just one manageable monthly bill.
- If your actual fuel costs are a little higher or lower than we estimated, we will make adjustments and spread them across your annual payments
- You won’t use more heating fuel than you would otherwise, you won’t pay more per gallon for your heating oil, and you’ll only pay for the heating oil you receive.
Price Cap Gives You Even More Predictability
EZ Pay from Black Bear also includes a price cap, which means your fuel price won’t go above a certain price no matter what happens in the oil markets. (Our suppliers charge us for this service, which we pass on to you. We make no profit on the fee.) If the price dips below the cap, you’ll pay the lower price!
Simpler Billing Means Easier Budgeting
Think of how much easier it will be to plan your monthly heating oil payments knowing what your energy bill will be! In a time where every day brings new “surprises,” it’s nice to have something you can bank on.
