Water Heater Switch Program

Water heater

Become a participant in this load management program and receive a $1.25 credit on your monthly electric bill.

How does the program work?

This program is designed to reduce peak load on the electric system during times of extreme cold or extreme heat. During these times, a radio signal turns off the electric current to hot water tanks with the switches. Once the peaking condition has passed, the radio signal ends and current is restored. The program has resulted in significant savings to the Cooperative and consumers.

The radio controlled switch can be installed on an electric water heater with a capacity of 50 gallons or more.

Incentives

South Central Power sends to participants in the program a one-time check of $15 and then takes $1.25 off the monthly electric bill for as long as the consumer has the switch in place. The switch is installed at no cost.
