2022/23 Lake Vernon Propane Agreement

Dear LVA Members,  

As one of your membership advantages, the LVA offers a preferred propane rate to its members.  Last year, after several requests, we piloted a second agreement with Superior Propane to complement our long-standing MOORE Propane partnership.  Unfortunately, there was only a few members who took advantage of the Superior offer leaving us far short of the volume necessary to sustain the preferred rate.  Superior propane has withdrawn their LVA discounted offer for the upcoming contract period.  If you are a Superior customer, please contact their office directly to discuss their new rates. We continue to have a strong long-standing partnership with MOORE Propane who will continue to offer a discounted competitive rate to our members.  Like most commodities, propane costs have seen significant volatility over the past year and are somewhat unpredictable given this economic climate.   

MOORE Propone offers two rate programs:  1) Monthly Variable and 2) Annual Fixed.  

The LVA MOORE rate for this year (September 1st 2022 to August 31st 2023) is as follows:
Monthly Variable Rate:              Published rack rate per litre plus $0.24
(rate drops to $0.21 if previous individual annual volume exceeds 5000 litres)
Annual Fixed Rate:                    The fixed rate is set at $0.799/litre
(rate drops by $0.03 if previous individual annual volume exceeds 5000 litres)

NOTE:  It is only necessary to contact MOORE Propane if you wish to change your current rate structure.  (eg.   From variable to fixed or fixed to variable).  ALL requested changes MUST be made by September 8th, 2022.   If no changes are requested, the new rates will be reflected on your next billing.  When speaking with a MOORE account advisor, remember to state you are a current Lake Vernon Member.  

If you have any questions, we can be contacted at or simply reach out to the Moore office at 905-385-9111.
