Water Heater Programs

Generac Grid Services offers water heater demand response programs that harness easy-to-install load control switches and CTA-2045 communication modules.

As one of the larger household loads, water heaters that can connect to the smart grid enable grid operators to achieve cost reductions, while also offering utility customers incentives for the passive provision of grid services. Efficient tank-based electric water heaters can hold high temperatures for elongated periods of time, making them a reliable tool to control energy demand without negatively affecting end customers.
