Welcome to Derbyshire Community Oil Buying Scheme

Rural Action Derbyshire (RAD) is an independent organisation and registered charity that has been successfully working for the rural community of Derbyshire since 1924.

RAD set up the oil buying scheme in 2011 to help reduce the cost of heating oil for members by negotiating with oil suppliers for a bulk order.

99% of members who always buy oil with us are VERY HAPPY with the scheme.

If you’re not sure how this scheme will work for you, please look at our FAQ or contact Emma Simpson at RAD on 07540 769118.

As a charity, it is the fuel poor households* we want to help the most. If you join our scheme and order your oil through us, you are directly helping to keep energy bills as low as possible for everyone. Thank you.

RAD works with eSmartMetrics Ltd (trading as olive). Olive operates the website, handles payments and works with the oil companies to ensure members get a good price for oil orders.

Anyone can join – homeowner or tenant, business or community building, farms, caravan parks and holiday lets. Standard delivery vehicles are used so if you need a ‘baby’ tanker, we may not be able to deliver to your property.

If you have any queries do not hesitate to contact Emma Simpson at RAD on 01629 592970 / 07540 736118 or email e.simpson@ruralactionderbyshire.org.uk.

* Until recently, the usual definition of fuel poverty was that a household was considered to be in fuel poverty when it needed to spend more than 10% of its income on energy. The most recent Government statistics estimate the number of households in fuel poverty in England is just over 10%. According to a survey of our oil buying scheme members, 39% spend over 10% of their household income on energy bills.
