Hello and welcome to the web site of the Witheridge Oil Purchase Energy Cooperative commonly known as WOPEC, where we hope to be able to demonstrate the value of using our 'bulk' oil buying system as a way of saving you money when you purchase your Home Heating Oil as well as savings on Boiler & Chimney Sweep Services.
Rather than waste your time perhaps we should state that at present we only operate this service within the following EX & TA post code areas:
EX 2, 5, 11, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39.
TA 21, 22, 23, 24, 3, 41, 42, 43, 44, 51.
As an oil user you will be aware that its price can be extremely volatile, fluctuating sometimes daily depending on the World economy, the political situation in the Middle East and the value of the American Dollar to name a few reasons. Most other products you buy have prices that are relatively stable for a reasonably long period, enabling you to research the market and buy at your leisure. Purchasing oil, a necessity for many people who live in rural communities is different, as when it needs replenishing you are forced to purchase it quickly at what ever the prevailing price is. This does not necessarily mean that you have to accept the first price that is quoted to you by your normal oil supplier, as even in an expensive market there are large differences in price between the companies.
