Oregon Farm Bureau has a partnership with AmeriGas Propane. AmeriGas will offer a 5¢-per-gallon discount to Farm Bureau members. Propane is a versatile fuel for the farm, home, and business. AmeriGas strives to provide its customers the most reliable, safest, and responsive service in the industry.
The AmeriGas difference: When it comes to managing the farm industry, there are many variables that can affect the bottom line. By making AmeriGas your supplier, you will keep your operating costs down and productivity up. By choosing the Automatic Delivery option, you are guaranteed not to run out of gas. There also is 24/7 emergency service.
AmeriGas also offers a wide variety of payment options. You can automatically have your invoice deducted from your bank account or credit card with AutoPay. You can use our online customer service center, and pay your bills online with E-Pay. AmeriGas offers the BudgetPay program, which allows you to spread your propane costs over 12 months for easy budgeting.
Propane is exceptional energy: Propane is an extremely versatile fuel. For the home, propane is used for central and space heating, water heating, cooking, clothes drying, and many other applications. On the farm, propane helps keep your livestock warm, poultry brooding, heats greenhouses and nurseries, dries crops, and meets dairy farm needs. Propane is the best choice for motor fuel with uses in forklifts, trucks, fleets, and any alternative fuel vehicle. Other businesses benefit by using propane for heating, in food preparation, cleaning, welding, and many other uses.
Propane has long been recognized as a clean, environmentally friendly energy source. It is an approved alternative fuel listed in both the Clean Air Act of 1990 and the National Energy Policy of 1992. Propane appliances are a great way to save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Propane is a clean-burning fuel, while 50% of electricity comes from power plants burning coal.

Oregon Farm Bureau, RS Energy announce new solar system member benefit!
Oregon Farm Bureau is proud to announce a new member benefit partnership with RS Energy, an installer of high-quality commercial solar panel systems. RS Energy has designed five optimal solar panel systems specifically for farmers and ranchers, and will offer them at significant savings for Farm Bureau members.
Through the new partnership, Farm Bureau members can save between $14,515 and $165,144 when they install a RS Energy solar system on their farm or ranch.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the agriculture community, which has seen electrical costs skyrocket almost 10 percent in the last two years,” said Billy Sorenson, partner with RS Energy.
Using solar energy can save as much as $2,000,000 from a farm or ranch’s power bills during the life of the system, said Sorenson.
Solar systems can be installed on the roof or on the ground; ground systems take up less than a quarter of an acre. RS Energy also offers four different financing options.
RS Energy’s systems qualify for the 30 percent federal investment tax credit for solar. Portland General Electric or Pacific Power customers who install a system are also eligible for an Energy Trust of Oregon cash incentive up to $400,000.
Based on the success of the program, RS Energy will make donations to Farm Bureau’s education and outreach programs.
To determine if a solar system is right for your farm or ranch, email RS Energy’s Billy Sorenson at firstname.lastname@example.org. RS Energy will meet with interested Farm Bureau members to offer site-specific walk-throughs.
OFB is pleased to announce a new partnership with Supervised Fuels, a division of Mid-Columbia Producers Inc., to offer qualified voting and supporting Farm Bureau members wholesale fuel pricing at Pacific Pride and CFN card-lock stations statewide.
HOW: Farm Bureau members can fill out and return this form to Supervised Fuels for more information, to get answers to questions, and to see if they qualify for the wholesale price.
Forms should be emailed to email@example.com or faxed to 541.323.2170. For questions about the program, call Supervised Fuels at 541.330.8356.
