How it works:

1. Join the Co-op if you haven't already(​click here to download​ a member application). You'll need your Member ID Number.

2. When you have your Member ID Number, fill out Suburban's application. You MUST put your Co-op Member Number on the upper right-hand corner of the Suburban application.

3. Also fill out the Sales Tax Exemption Certificate. Propane is not taxed when customers do not have natural gas available at their home. Propane for business use is always taxed.

4. Mail Suburban's applications to:

Suburban Propane
1210 N. Main St.
Fort Bragg, CA 95437

You may also fax it them: 707-263-0169

You can email them as well! bcanepa@suburbanpropane.com

If you need to confirm receipt of the applications, call the Lakeport office: 707-263-5428

5. Suburban will contact you to plan the tank switch. If you are already a Suburban customer or own your own tank, a new tank won't be necessary and you can start buying at the new price any time.

6. If renting, Suburban will bring your new tank, move the old one aside, transfer your remaining gas, and top off the new Suburban tank. You do NOT have to use up the gas in your old tank.

7. Call your old supplier to have them pick up their tank.

8. You will be billed at the new price.

Additional Information

If your Co-op dues are not kept current, Suburban will charge you their regular rate. If you don't meet Suburban's credit requirements, you may still purchase propane, but Suburban will ask you to pay at the time of delivery. If you are on automatic-fill and run out of gas, there will be no charge to bring gas to you right away and re-light your pilots. If you are not on automatic-fill and run out, you will be charged $75 if you can wait until your area's regular weekly delivery day. For immediate service on other days, the charge is $175 for special gas delivery and pilot re-lighting. Don't run out of gas--watch the gauge. This requirement is similar to other companies' agreements.

There is an “early termination fee.” The fee only applies to new customers who receive the benefit of a new tank installation at no charge. The fee is not charged if the property is sold or you move, as long as Suburban's tank remains in place to supply the new resident, whether or not the new resident decides to buy from Suburban. If you already have a Suburban tank you are excluded--however, the early termination fee you may have originally agreed to still applies. Tank owners will have no early termination fee.

You can find the refinery price on the web at: ​http://www.dgs.ca.gov/pd/Programs/Leveraged/ contracts/FuelPosting.aspx ​ Once there, click on the top blue bar, then choose a date. Choose the San Francisco refinery price.

Remember, the Laid-in cost is about $0.10 more than the refinery price. Keep that in mind when attempting to estimate your fuel price.
