East-Central Iowa REC offers a special Heat Plus heating rate that can save qualifying members up to 50% on winter heating bills. This rate is currently 0.0485 per kWh and is available from October 1 to May 31.
To qualify for the special rate, your heating system must:
- Be electric and be metered separately.
- Use the primary electric heating source first, with the back-up system operating only when the primary system is unable to satisfy the indoor thermostat setting.
- Use the primary electric system to heat an area of 400 square feet or more.
- Use a premium-grade, 50-gallon electric water heater to provide 100% of the domestic water heating for the home (except for the energy supplied from an electric heat pump desuperheater).
Call to see if your home, office, business, or shop qualifies for these savings, and check out our Heat Plus brochure for more details.
