We want you to get the most value for your energy dollars. That's why we offer discounts for senior citizens and for customers who choose our budget plan or authorize Skaggs-Walsh to use automatic withdrawal from a checking account. Give us a call and we'll explain how you can qualify for our savings programs.
Our Budget Plan Is Important ... and Gives You a Discount, Too!
We want to address the issue of payments. We know that for many people the bills that are coming in are a challenge to pay. We are urging all of you to take a moment and consider our annual budget program. We send out a mailing every June on this topic. Many customers participate but many do not. Rather than just toss the mailing, please take a moment to decide if this would be a good way to budget your heating costs with 11 equal monthly payments. Aside from the cash flow benefit, we offer a per gallon discount for anyone who participates in our budget program.
At Skaggs-Walsh, we value you as our customers and we are trying to make life easier for you! After all, you are part of our family.
You don't need to be an economist to know that energy prices are volatile. There are several reasons for these up-and-down prices, including worldwide supply and demand, increasing energy demands from developing nations, reduced refinery output, Wall Street speculators, etc.
However, remember that Skaggs-Walsh is doing everything we can to secure the best pricing for you and help you manage your energy costs.
Customers who are not currently on the Budget Plan should give it a look. In addition to the discount, you can spread your costs out over 11 months, instead of having to pay them all during the winter. Managing your heating expenses is much easier with a Skaggs-Walsh budget plan.

NY Home Energy Assistance Program (HEAP)
Everyone deserves the chance to stay warm and safe through the heating season – that’s where HEAP comes in. HEAP is a federally funded program that assists eligible households in meeting their home energy needs.
Low-income New York households may qualify for assistance through HEAP. Those who are eligible may receive a regular HEAP benefit (one per season) to help them afford to keep the heat on during the coldest of nights. There are also emergency HEAP benefits, which may be able to help out those who are in danger of running out of fuel or having their utility service shut off.
The application period for HEAP benefits begins in early to mid-November and continues into the winter, until the funding for the program runs out. Click here to check your eligibility, apply for benefits, create and manage your own account and find out if you qualify for assistance this heating season.
