The Membership Application period is not yet Open

We will be accepting membership applications for the 2023–2024 heating season in the summer, after we negotiate prices with the fuel suppliers.

In the meantime, you can register to create a password-protected account to be notified about the 2023–2024 season's prices, membership application period, and to make it easier to pay your membership fee.
The mission of the Mid-Hudson Fuel Buying Co-op is to offer discounted fuels, services, and equipment to its members and to promote energy conservation and alternative energy use. The co-op has been negotiating with local suppliers of propane, fuel oil and kerosene since 2013 and currently serves New York's Ulster, Dutchess, Columbia, Orange, Sullivan and Greene counties.

The co-op negotiates discounted prices for fuel oil, propane, kerosene and service contracts each spring for the upcoming season. Members must reapply each summer to qualify for the co-op prices in the following heating season. Members create a password-protected account on this website and pay the membership fee when the membership period opens. They enter into a contract directly with the co-op supplier for fuel and other products and services. The annual, non-refundable membership fee is $10 per supplier.

The co-op is administered by a small group of unpaid volunteers who have no connection to the industry or to any heating fuel company. One part-time employee responds to emails and telephone inquiries. All members are invited to share in these administrative tasks involved in running the co-op.

Online registration is available any time on this website. Creating such an account ensures you will be sent further information about the sign-up periods and contracts offered each year, it does NOT make you a member of the co-op. Once the new season prices have been negotiated they are posted, together with the dates of the annual membership application period, on this website and on the co-op's Facebook page. The Facebook group page is open to members and non-members of the co-op, and we encourage comments and posts related to heating and energy conservation issues. Please also read our FAQ page on this website before joining the co-op.
