East-Central Iowa Rural Electric Cooperative 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. Check out our Heat Plus brochure for more information.
To qualify for the special rate, your heating system must:
Be electric and 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 50-gallon or larger 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).
Heat Plus is primarily a residential option, but your
business may qualify. Call 877-850-4343 for more information.
