Join the Sound Tigers for the 2019 Playoffs

The Sound Tigers are playing THIS Friday and Saturday Night at 7 p.m. against the Hershey Bears in Round 1 of the playoffs.  They’re offering CEA members a special ticket and T-shirt package OR a ticket, food, and beverage package.

Cut Your Propane Costs Today

Residents of Connecticut pay a lot for propane, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. The average price per gallon for most of this winter has been barely under $3.00.

The price is so high here in the northeast because almost all propane in the United States is stored either in Texas or Oklahoma. The expense of transportation—by pipeline, rail, or container truck—increases the costs.

The good news is that CEA members have a solution available to them: Tankfarm. The Tankfarm Group partners with local propane supplies to install tanks and make deliveries, but it is Tankfarm, not the supplier, that sets the pricing and terms. The result for CEA members? Annual savings that can run into the thousands of dollars.

Here’s how it works:

  1. You can get an instant quote for propane at tankfarmgroup.com/cea
  2. If you like the quote, you can apply online in minutes.
  3. You’ll get an appointment with a Tankfarm partner supplier to have your tanks replaced or inspected.
  4. Once that’s done, you’ll get your first delivery, and the partner supplier will make sure you never run out of propane.

It’s that simple. The best part is that there are no charges for setup, tanks, or deliveries, and there is no hazmat, low-usage or any other kind of fee. Because you’re a member of CEA, you’ll also receive $50 worth of free propane upon signup and a certificate for a $100 equipment upgrade.

Consider a visit to the Tankfarm website at tankfarmgroup.com/cea to get your instant quote. It might just save you hundreds of dollars.

For more information, call 1-855-976-4141 or email support@tankfarmgroup.com.
