As many homeowners are seeking to better control their propane gas energy costs, there is one important caveat that many don’t know. When a specific propane provider owns your underground storage tank (UST), you are required to purchase your propane gas from that provider. The homeowner has no flexibility to shop providers for a better price and service. “That’s not very consumer friendly”, says Michael Siegel, Co-owner of iDeal Gas. “We think homeowners should be able to invite multiple propane service providers to compete for their business.”

iDeal Gas, a BBB A+ rated propane company headquartered in St. Augustine, is helping homeowners overcome this barrier through a new financing partnership with GreenSky Financing.

“We are excited to announce our new partnership with GreenSky to help homeowners easily and painlessly finance the $2,500-$4,000 cost for a new buried propane tank install or replacement.

The GreenSky finance program offers no payments for 90 days and payments as little as $50 monthly,” explained Doug Brady, Co-Owner of iDeal Gas. “There are so many folks that are stuck paying propane providers with price accelerators based on the name on their tank. By owning your own propane tank, you have the flexibility to shop around and select the right propane provider for you.”
