Propane Programs

Federated Co-ops offers a variety of program and payment options – choose what works best for you.

Federated Co-ops understands that in today’s challenging economy our customers desire value-added programs and payment options which are easy to manage, convenient, and secure.

SCHEDULED DELIVERY
This free service takes the worry out of winter. We keep your propane tank full using the Degree Day System. A Degree Day System tabulates the daily temperature below 65 degrees and calculates your next delivery based on your consumption history in relation to  elapsed degree days. Our system also calculates your consumption for non-heating gas appliances. We can calculate high consumption customers based on elapsed days. Does this sound complicated? Don’t worry and just leave the calculations to us. Unfortunately, we can only use this system if propane is your only source of heat. We do have an electronic tank monitoring system available for those who have uneven or large consumption patterns.

Call your local Federated office, which can be found on the locations page, if you are interested in our Scheduled Delivery Program.

SELF PAY
Great new option for our customers called SELF-PAY, a new program with flexible payments.

How Does SELF-PAY Work?

Self-Pay payments simply accumulate credit on your account until you need a delivery. Federated will apply your accumulated credit towards your delivery. If your credit does not meet your delivery amount you only pay the difference at the time of your delivery! Self pay payments can be made when you want for as much as you want.

Self-Pay can be done with your credit/debit card or checking/savings account. Self pay payments can be mailed in, paid with credit or debit card or deducted directly from your checking account or savings account. Self pay can also be setup with our auto pay system.

E-COMMERCE
Visit our E-Commerce Page to open an E-COMMERCE Account.  

With a Federated E-Commerce Account you can pay your invoices on-line using your credit/debit card or your checking account. You can manage your Federated account such as viewing invoices, credits, payment history, recent purchases, contracts, propane tank and grain information, along with paperless statements if you would like.

PROPANE PRE-BUY PLAN
Each summer we offer seasonal price protection through our Pre-Buy program. This program allows you to pre-purchase your propane for the following heating season at a fixed price per gallon. We, in turn, Pre-Buy the aggregate needs of our customers through our suppliers who store this product in underground caverns until needed.

At the end of our Pre-Buy program, any of your unused gallons will be converted back to a credit balance on your account so you will never lose your investment. Our strong financial standing secures your investment in us adding additional value to doing business with your local cooperative.

Our scheduled delivery program works well in conjunction with our Pre-Buy program taking the concern about having to order propane or pay a propane bill for the heating season.
