Water Heater Switch Program

The Water Heater Switch program was created 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.


Participants in the program received a one-time bill credit of $15 on installation of the switch, then received a $1.25 bill credit for as long as the consumer has the switch in place. The switch was installed at no cost.


We are no longer accepting new enrollments in the program.
