Peak Shave Water Heating
The EnergyWise Peak Shave Water Heating Program is designed to reduce demand on the electrical system on days of high demand and peak pricing. These are typically the hottest or coldest days of the season. This program also reduces demand for electricity during system emergencies. By allowing Stearns Electric to control your water heater during these peak periods, you ultimately help keep our retail energy rates low.
