Aiken Electric’s H2O Select®PLUS 2 electric water heater and timer incentive program makes it easy for you to earn while you save – and still stay in hot water.
What’s H2O Select®PLUS 2?
H2O Select®PLUS 2 is a water heater and timer incentive program for residential properties served by Aiken Electric Cooperative (AEC). With H2O Select®PLUS 2 you can choose a free, new high-efficiency electric water heater AND cash incentives as well as conserve important resources, including your money!
How Does H2O Select®PLUS 2 Work?
I’m a Builder. What Does the H2O Select®PLUS 2 Offer Me?
As a new home builder you can choose the following options:
Worry-Free Maintenance, Too?
For members/owners receiving a free, new high-efficiency 50-gallon or 80-gallon electric water heater in your existing home, with or without a timer, a 10-year worry-free maintenance warranty to protect your electric water heater is available from Aiken Electric Cooperative for just $2.99 a month. All water heaters must be installed by an approved AEC contractor.
For new home construction or for a change-out from a gas water heater to an electric water heater, the worry-free electric water heater maintenance warranty is provided free for a full 10 years.
What’s Covered by the Worry-Free Maintenance Warranty?
With the worry-free maintenance warranty, your H2O Select®PLUS 2 electric water heater is protected by a full 10-year warranty that covers all parts and labor, as well as one tank replacement, if necessary. The warranty does not cover damages caused by fire, theft, neglect or acts of God.
What’s a Timer?
A timer is a load control switch that turns off your electric water heater at a time during power demand peaks in the summer and winter months. When you allow the electricity to your water heater to be controlled with a timer, the cooperative can reduce its electrical use during demand peaks and save money, passing those savings on to you. Control is based on peak as needed.
CONTROL TIME WINDOW:
Winter 6 A.M. — 11 A.M. - Summer 1 P.M. — 9 P.M.
In reality, most members/owners with timers rarely, if ever, notice that it is being controlled. This means that, without any interruption in comfort or hot water, the co¬op and you are saving money.
Sounds good! How Do I Qualify?
