VEC Propane

Pay-As-You-Go Propane

NEVER Pay to Have Your Tank Filled

  • Volunteer Energy’s metered propane allows you to “pay-as-you-go” for propane in the same way that you pay for your electric usage.
  • The tank is filled at no cost to you
  • You are billed monthly only for the propane you use.

This service is currently offered in Bradley, Hamilton, McMinn, Meigs,  Rhea, and Roane counties, with plans to expand in the near future.

This venture is a valuable service provided to customers by VEC.  It is a financial hardship on many people to pay hundreds of dollars to fill their tanks as is required with traditional propane services.  With metered propane, customers are better able to manage their energy dollars.
