How It Works


  • A professional installs a free device on your water heater.

  • On days when demand is high, we will let you know we’re scheduling an Energy Savings Event.

  • On these event days your water heater will turn off during the afternoon when rates are highest.

  • The hot water in your tank will still be usable. But new water that fills the tank will not be heated until the event is over.

  • When the event is over your water heater will return to normal. Events usually last around four hours.
