Electric Water Heaters
The new electric water heaters are marvels of technology. They're not only safer than other types of water heaters, they're lower in cost and more environmentally friendly. Installation is less expensive too. Best of all, the energy professionals at Hawkeye REC offer some great incentives to buy one.
More Hot Water. Less Cost.
To save you money, the new electric water heaters are more efficient than ever before. Hawkeye has programs to manage your water heater's energy use so that it heats your water during off-peak hours when the cost of electricity is lowest. This results in cost savings for you. And, because the new electric water heaters are larger and better insulated, they'll keep all the water you want hot until you need it.
Safe. Cleaner. More Convenient.
Compared to even the most modern gas water heaters, the new electric models are safer, cleaner and more convenient. Electric water heaters don't need venting. There's no flame and no fumes. Nothing to pollute the air inside your home, which means everyone will breathe easier.

What is Load Management?
It is a program to help balance supply and demand. Load management involves techniques such as interrupting water heaters or air conditioners for short periods of time, and controlling when irrigation pumps or grain drying systems run. This reduces Dairyland Power Cooperative's total demand during peak use hours. Extremely warm or cold weather also creates an enormous amount of demand on the energy system, with the increase in air conditioner and furnace use.
Residential water heaters can be controlled at any time with the maximum control period not exceeding six hours in duration during any 10-hour period.
Central air conditioning systems are typically cycled 15 minutes on, then 15 minutes off during a control period, which are typically during hot and humid conditions. The total cycled control time is up to four hours per day, but can be extended to nine hours during periods of peak electrical demand.
