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!

CEC offers electric water heaters to our residential members to support our Load Management Program. The program helps CEC to avoid purchasing power when it is most expensive, thus stabilizing costs for all members. When the tanks are installed, the professional installer will also mount a device capable of disconnecting power to the water heater during peak demand periods.

We offer a 75-gallon water heater, which is ideal for program participation. Also offered is a 50-gallon tank for smaller households that would like to participate. 

marathonResidential members can purchase a 75-gallon Marathon Water Heater for $800 (a $1,402 retail value).

The tank is installed through our professional contractor, Dr. Waterheater, Inc., and you must participate in our Load Management Program for a minimum of five years. 

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!
