Interruptible Water Heating

Need a new water heater? 

Purchase one from MEC. You have two options:

  • Pay $465 
  • Sign up for our water heater load management program and get your water heater for $225 out-of-pocket. We’ll give you an instant $50 rebate as a credit on your bill to bring your upfront cost down to $175. You will then receive a $4 credit on your bill each month for 60 months to cover the remaining $240 


As a participant in the load management program, you agree to let us shut off your water heater during times of peak usage. You still have access to your water heater and the hot water stored in your tank. We generally control water heaters three to four times each month for three to four hours. However, we can control anytime from 11 a.m. – 9 p.m. To qualify, you must

  • Own your home
  • Have good payment history on your MEC account
  • Use over 400 kWh per month
