Stored Water Heating
The EnergyWise Stored Water Heating Program conserves energy by heating water on week days during off-peak hours when electric costs are the lowest. Your water heater will heat from 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. and then distribute hot water throughout the day. (No control on weekends or holidays.)

Must have a 90% efficient 80 gallon or larger water heater. Stearns Electric Association recommends a 100 gallon storage capacity water heater.
