ECI Energy update

ECI Energy update


After a tough winter, warmer weather is finally here.  The energy department at ECI is transitioning into spring and summer mode.  We are looking forward to servicing your needs.  Here are a few topics that we would like to communicate for the upcoming season:


Dust control - To provide the best service and quality ECI has sourced a new supplier of product for the 2019 season. We are offering Lignin Sulfonate and Magnesium Chloride as our products this year. Stop into any ECI location for applications and flags.  Pending weather events we are planning on starting in May.  Last week the dust control flyers were mailed out.  Please be sure to send them back by April 15th


Propane Summer Fill - ECI will be offering propane summer fills starting June 1st and going thru July 30th.

Annual propane contracts will begin September 1st.  Please be sure to get your contract

back to us by August 31st


Fuel Contracts – Generally speaking, the best time to buy diesel and gasoline for spring is Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day.  So far buying this year looks like a good bet.  If you haven’t booked for spring, we recommend buying off the truck.  If you are looking forward to fall we recommend buying anywhere from the middle of June to the middle of July. 

In the past ECI has not offered contracts for transport loads of fuel.  We can now offer these contracts to customers that are set up for transport deliveries.  Please call Ellen Westhoff our fuel sales specialist at 641-919-9675 for current pricing and strategies. 


We appreciate your business!
