Mid-Plains Energy is a wholly owned subsidiary of Decatur Coop Association, with the main office in Jennings. We deliver propane to a large area of Northwest Kansas. Counties include: Norton, Graham, Sheridan, Decatur, Rawlins, Thomas, Cheyenne, Logan and Sherman. We also cover a small area in Nebraska.
Mid-Plains Energy's propane route is broken into 3 delivery areas, staffed by 2 fulltime certified delivery personnel. Dan Manis; base out of Colby, covers the Southern counties, Richard Karnopp; based out of Oberlin, covers the Northern counties.
The most effective and safe way to deliver propane is on a route system. Deliveries are made every 4-5 weeks. Being put on route delivery reduces the risk of disruption of service and incurred charges for out-of-gas calls.
CALL IN DELIVERIES
As mentioned above route delivery is the preferred. If the customer chooses not to be on a route, a delivery is still made, but there will be an added cost for this service, unless arrangements can be made for delivery when a propane truck is on the route in that area. There is a $40.00 leak test fee if a call in customer runs out of propane. Consistently running out of propane may result in denied service. The following charges will apply for call-in deliveries:
Less than 300 gallons $75.00 delivery fee
300 or more gallons $50.00 delivery fee
CALL-IN DELIVERIES WILL BE DONE AT MID-PLAINS ENERGYS CONVENIENCE. THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT THE PROPANE WILL BE DELIVERED ON THE SAME DAY THE CALL-IN WAS MADE!
If a customer has filled out a convenience credit application and been approved, credit terms are net 15 days. If there is no credit account on file, payment is due at the time the propane is delivered.
This locks the customer into a pre-determined price for the winter heating season, September through April. Enrolling in a fixed price contract automatically puts the customer on one of the propane routes. All the requirements set forth in billing will apply. Fixed contracts are offered in August.
This is a 10 month contract that locks the customer in at a pre-determined price per gallon. It takes the customers estimated gallons used times the price, plus tax and is then divided over the 10 month period. The payment are due July through April with delivery starting in September through April. This contract benefits both the customer and Mid-Plains Energy because these accounts are also put on one of the propane delivery routes. No credit approval is required.
Mid-Plains Energy offers a prepay contract at a reduced price. This takes the reduced price per gallon times the gallons, plus tax and a check is sent back with the contract. These are sent out with the Fixed Price contracts in August. These are also put on route deliveries.
Mid-Plains Energy offers a summer irrigation contract that runs from May through October.
It is the policy of Mid-Plains Energy to adhere to the policies set forth by the propane industry. One of these policies is that regulators are to be updated according to industry standards. The service personnel will make the customer aware of any updates that need to be done. It is the customer's responsibility as the end-user to report any disruptions of service due to installing new appliances and etc. Mid-Plains Energy is not qualified to work on appliances. Please contact a company that specializes in that area. Safety is of utmost importance to Mid-Plains Energy for both the customer and for delivery personnel.
REFURBISHED PROPANE TANKS
Mid-Plains Energy has in stock 500 & 1000 gallon refurbished propane tanks. These are ideal for new installations or updating to keep up with propane usage. Regulators and other fittings are not included. Call for pricing.
