Water Heater Program
The cooperative offers the following rebate program for electric water heaters installed in the cooperative's service territory.
Water Heaters (Installed in BHEC's service territory) — For new construction: Black Hills Electric Cooperative will sell to the builder or homeower a Marathon water heater with a life-time warranty on the tank for half the cooperative's cost. For new construction using a non-Marathon water heater, the cooperative will pay $1 per gallon.
Replacing an electric water heater: Members may purchase a Marathon water heater from the cooperative at a discount. The cooperative does not pay a rebate for replacing an electric water heater with a non-Marathon water heater.
For fossil fuel conversion: BHEC will sell a Marathon water heater to its members for 75% off our cost or the member may receive $3 per gallon if replacing other fuel with an non-Marathon electric water heater purchased elsewhere.
