Off Peak Heating For Residential Electric

The off peak heating program is available to customers who have electricity as their primary heat source and also have a back-up heating system. Eligible back-up systems include storage heat, fuel oil, natural gas or propane. During times of peak demand, the electric heat source will be shut off (controlled) by a load control receiver and your backup heat source will keep your house warm. If your system is approved for the off peak heating and you have a large electric water heater (80 gallons and larger), the water heater can also be put on this program. The off peak load will be metered separately and receive the off peak rate in the months of October through May. Water heaters will receive a bill credit for the months of June through September. The off peak rate is considerably lower than regular rates.

Load Management (Demand Response) Program

The load management program was designed to lower our peak demand periods to reduce power supply costs. Short periods of peak demand can drastically drive up power costs. Our program focuses on water heaters and central air conditioners. A load control receiver is installed and connected to the equipment to be cycled (turned off and on) during high demand periods.

By volunteering your water heater and/or your air conditioner, you can help reduce our peak load and costly demand charges. Cycling ensures that everyone in the community is not running equipment at the same time. Your water heater has many gallons of heated water stored. For air conditioners, the furnace fan will remain on during the control event allowing the already cooled air to circulate within your home. For these reasons, most customers are unaware their equipment is being controlled. Call our office to sign up for this program.
