Capped Price Plan:

This Price provides both upside and downside price protection, so regardless of the market conditions you always pay the lower KoscoHeritage price. The Capped price is based on the daily Average Newburgh Rack posting plus the MHFBC discounted margin and a predetermined cap price. You are required to commit to purchase a specific number of gallons* that you determined will meet your needs. A Capped Program Fee will be billed to your account for the downside price protection. As an automatic delivery customer, if all the gallons are used, you will be moved to the KoscoHeritage Prevailing Retail price.

Capped Budget Price Plan:

This plan is identical to the Cap Prepay Plan with one difference: You don’t have to prepay for your plan gallons instead you have the added benefit of spreading your payments out over 12 equal monthly payments. This plan eliminates higher fuel bills during the winter season.

The Capped Budget price is based on the daily Average Newburgh Rack posting plus the MHFBC discounted margin and a predetermined cap price. You are required to pre purchase a specific number of gallons* that you determined will meet your needs. A Capped Program Fee will be billed to your account for the downside price protection. As an automatic delivery customer, if all the gallons are used, you will be moved to the KoscoHeritage Prevailing Retail price.

Floating Price Plan:

This Plan prices will fluctuate with the market with no price protection for price escalations in the market but will move lower if market prices decrease. The Floating price is based on the daily Average Newburgh Rack posting plus the MHFBC discounted margin. As an automatic delivery customer on a Floating Price Plan you do not have to make a commitment to a predetermined number of gallons per season.

Fixed Price Plan:

This Plan prices are fixed at a MHFBC discounted rate and will not change up or down with the market. You are required to pre-purchase and pay for a fixed number of gallons that you determined will meet your needs. If all the gallons are used, you will automatically be moved to the KoscoHeritage Prevailing Retail Price.

*Members are expected to order only the number of gallons that they reasonably expect to use during the 2022-2023 heating. Excessive purchases (over 10% of actual usage) may be subject to fees equal to the early termination fees for any unused gallons purchased. New language.
