Storage Water Heating

Storage water heating is a cost-effective way to meet your hot water needs. Plus it saves you up to 63 percent on your water heating costs with our special 5.3 cents per kWh rate. We even provide the metering equipment free of charge for measuring your storage-water-heating kilowatt hours.

How Does it Work?

You store a larger quantity of water that's heated by the off-peak controls during an eight-hour, off-peak period (usually 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. - when you're sleeping.)

We base the water heater capacity on the size of your family or business to meet your specific hot-water needs for the 16-hour, off-period. (See chart below.)

No venting is required with electric water heating.
