Load Management

A voluntary program where member-owners allow the Cooperative to install a remotely controlled switch on their electric storage-type water heater. This allows the Cooperative to control that heater during peak times of electrical demand system-wide. Any reduction in peak demand results in a savings to the Cooperative which, in turn, are savings for the member-owners. The program included 9,036 switches by the end of 2015. Those devices contributed $842,302 toward load-control program savings in 2015. Our wholesale power costs have been reduced by over $30 million since the program's inception.
