Electric Water Heater
The Rewards Switch will cycle off 100% of the electricity to your water heater during periods of peak electric demand. Any water already heated by the tank should remain hot. However, if the water in the tank is used up during the event, new water will not be heated until the cycling event is over. All water heaters must meet Blue Ridge Electric sizing standards and program criteria to be eligible.
