Install an electric water heater 

For a limited time only, you can upgrade to an electric thermal storage (ETS) water heater to receive a rebate of up to $500, 0% financing and a lifetime of energy savings. This offer is only available until Dec. 31, 2021.

ETS water heaters draw electricity at night when it’s in low demand and less expensive, saving you money on your water heating costs. Even better, they’re lightweight, easy to install and backed by a lifetime warranty. 

Members receive the lowest price available for electricity used by the water heater. For detailed information, contact the Energy Experts® at 651-463-6243 or email [email protected].
