Water Heater Bill Credits

Are you in the market for a new water heater? Southwestern Electric Cooperative may be able to help you defray the cost.

The co-op offers a $250 bill credit to members when they convert from a gas water heater to an electric water heater.  A maximum of two credits are available to homes with more than one electric water heater. 


The credit applies to the following living situations:

  • Water heaters in single-family homes;
  • Modular, manufactured or custom homes used as permanent residences;
  • Multi-family homes (limited to a four-plex);
  • Small, commercial single-tenant office buildings;
  • Residential or small commercial radiant floor applications; and
  • Certain other applications, which may be approved on a case-by-case basis.


In order to qualify for the bill credit the electric water heater must be of sufficient capacity to meet the water-heating requirements of the location it serves. It must also meet all specifications outlined by Southwestern Electric Cooperative. Before issuing a credit, the co-op must receive proof of purchase and complete an inspection of the installation. To get started, please download and complete the Water Heater Bill Credit Application.
