Electricity cannot be stored economically. It is produced 24 hours a day even though the greatest demand is during the day.
Shifting to low usage periods at night, allows you to capitalize on less expensive, off-peak electricity. WMU passes these savings onto participants in its Off-Peak Heating Storage Program.
Storage heaters convert electricity into heat during off-peak hours (11 pm to 7 am). The heat is stored, then distributed as needed to heat your home 24 hours a day.
Homes with an existing electric boiler or other heat source may also qualify for WMU’s low off-peak rates.
A representative of WMU will visit your home to inspect your electric heating system and make arrangements to have the off-peak energy equipment installed.
Households intending to install an electric heating system should contact WMU for assistance and assurance it will meet the specifications needed for participation.
