Vooruit Zottegem’s heating oil campaign resulted in a joint purchase of 700,000 litres. “For 1 liter of fuel oil, the participants pay € 1.0888/litre (incl. VAT). That means a discount of € 126.4 per 1,000 liters (compared to the daily price) regardless of the volume ordered. For Vooruit Zottegem the sign that joint purchasing works!” say initiators Sandra De Roeck, Anja Van De Kerckhove and Kurt De Loor.
“The stipulated price for normal fuel oil was 1.0888 €/l (incl. VAT) regardless of the number of liters ordered compared to the daily price of fuel oil of 1.2152 €/l (< 2000 liter) en 1,1833 €/liter (> 2000 litres). That is a saving of 10.5% on the daily price. In other words, you save 126.4 € per 1000 liters, regardless of the volume that you order. The fuel oil contract was won by fuel supplier Comfort Energy from Eke. All participants will be personally contacted by the supplier to make further practical arrangements for delivery. A total of 483 families took part in the campaign this year. Last year there were 320. For Vooruit Zottegem, this is a clear sign that the Zottegem native is also awake with winter approaching, in addition to his electricity bill and his heating oil bill. We are very pleased that we can reduce the energy bill for all the participants. By purchasing together, people with a smaller order can also take advantage of the maximum discount. Together we save 10,000 euros for our Zottegemnaren. We are happy that we can make a difference in reducing the energy bill for the Zottegemnaren a bit. For Vooruit Zottegem, this is a sign that group purchases work. In this way, Vooruit Zottegem really does something for the people in our Egmont city.”
