For nearly 20 years, the cooperative has sold and serviced energy-efficient electric water heaters with extended warranties. Because water heating accounts for 15 to 20 percent of a home’s energy consumption, choosing an energy-efficient electric water heater just makes good financial sense.
Marathon water heater:The cooperative will sell to a member a Marathon water heater that has a polyethylene outer jacket and a fiberglass inner tank surrounded by 2-1/2 inches of foam insulation, including the top and bottom. The tank is guaranteed not to leak or rust for the life of the water heater to the original owner. Additionally, the cooperative provides FREE parts and labor on the water heater for 10 years from the date of installation.
Water heaters supplied by others or heat pump water heaters: The cooperative also offers members the opportunity to purchase and install a water heater of their own choosing.
Water Heater Rebate Program
Lorain-Medina Rural Electric Cooperative offers rebates for the installation of a qualified electric water heater. Rebate amounts vary depending on the type of water heater installation and range from $125 to $500.

The cooperative will deduct $1.50 each month off your electric bill for the installation of the Load Control Switch.
Time Clock Switch available at no cost for optional Time of Day control.
