Did You Know... That water heating is the second-largest user of electricity in the average home? To reduce energy use related to water heating, lower your water heater thermostat setting to 120 degrees F. For each 10-degree reduction in water temperature, you can save 3 to 5 percent in energy costs. Reducing the temperature also slows mineral buildup and corrosion in your water heater and pipes, promoting longer use and more efficient operation.

The process begins with a FREE energy audit by our member services representative to target efficiency opportunities and decide what upgrades you need to make. The Co-op Energy Efficiency REBATE Program offers rebates for the installation of high-efficiency air-source, dual-fuel or geothermal heat pumps. The Co-op Energy Efficiency LOAN Program offers two low-interest loan options to finance energyefficient home improvements. Financing is dependent upon credit approval.
