Oil, Low Carbon….?
Although it may seem strange for a Low Carbon group to be running an Oil Syndicate, the HNLC Board is committed to reducing the carbon footprint of the community and providing information and support to those who would like to know more about converting from fossil fuels to green energy.
Hook Norton Oil Syndicate was set up in September 2009 by William Stubbs. William ran the Syndicate until he moved away from the village in June 2014.
It is a no fee – non-profit – community project, and is now run under the umbrella of Hook Norton Low Carbon.
A bulk order is made every other month after the co-ordinator secures the best price locally and emails the members asking for individual orders (minimum of 300 litres).
Average savings are in the region of 5-6p per litre
The benefits of the scheme are;
• Discounted oil price for all members regardless of the size of individual orders.
• Reduced tanker traffic flow through the village so easing congestion
• Reduction in the carbon footprint of both the village and the oil supplier
• A ‘baby tanker’ delivery for members with access restrictions to their oil storage tank
