You Have Options

To help budget heating costs, Dead River Company offers a range of payment options to fit your lifestyle—to include price protection and monthly budget plans. Your Customer Service Representative will be happy to guide you in choosing the plan that works best for your energy budget.


EasyCAP spreads annual heating costs over predictable monthly payments. If rates rise, you won’t pay more than your CAP price. If they fall, you pay the lower price. There is a fee associated with this level of protection.

Equal Payment Plan

Similar to EasyCAP, the Equal Payment Plan spreads your annual heating costs over predictable monthly payments but does not offer price protection. There is no fee associated with this option.

Fixed Price Budget Plan

Purchase a set number of gallons for the heating season at a fixed price per gallon. Your total heating cost is then divided into equal, predictable monthly payments. You pay the same fixed price per delivery – regardless of whether prices fall or rise.

Prepaid Fixed Price Plan

Pay ahead for the number of gallons you wish to purchase for the season at a fixed price per gallon. For each delivery, you’ll pay the same fixed price per gallon for the number of gallons purchased—whether prices go up or down.

Compare Plans

Whether you want to prepay for a fixed number of gallons, or you want the protection of paying no more than a capped price, Dead River Company has an option for you.
