Water Heater Program

CEC’s Water Heater Program offers complete peace of mind for all your hot water needs! 

Why go through all the hassles of installing a water heater when we can do it for you! Residential members can purchase a Marathon Water Heater for only $670 (a $1,266 retail value).

The tank must be installed through our professional contractor, Dr. Waterheater, Inc. and you must participate in our Load Management Program for a minimum of five years. This innovative program helps CEC avoid purchasing power when it’s the most expensive, thus stabilizing costs for all members.

This water heater has a high-efficiency design with a lightweight tank that won’t corrode. The unique construction of the plastic tank means a stronger, higher quality and longer lasting product. The titanium lower and copper upper elements resist lime buildup and operate more efficiently. These features, along with the outstanding lifetime warranty against leaks, make it one of the best electric water heaters in the industry!
