How’s your water heater doing?

The average life of a water heater is between 6 and 10 years.

The average life of a water heater is between 6 and 10 years. If your water heater has been around that long, it might be time to start thinking about replacing it.  Before it kicks the bucket.

If you’re a member of Horry Electric Cooperative and you’re ready to replace your existing water heater, you need to know about our H2O Select program!  

We’re offering rebates of $250 for a minimum 80-gallon electric water heaters or $125 for a minimum 50-gallon electric water heaters.  All you have to do is make sure the water heater meets the specifications of our program, sign the participation agreement and allow us to install a load management device on the unit.

To make sure the process goes smoothly, you’ll need a 4″ x 4″ metal junction box wired to the tank and verify that the upper and lower elements are not over 4500 watts.

If your water heater has already kicked the bucket and you’ve replaced it with a new one,  it still may not be too late to qualify for the program. If  you installed a replacement water heater that meets the requirements of the program and you did it in the past 12 months, we might still be able to qualify you to participate!

Horry Electric Cooperative is always glad to help members explore ways to use energy more efficiently and get the most out of their energy dollars. We created the water heater program to give participants a way to get plenty of hot water – efficiently and conveniently. Offering and qualifying members for this program helps Horry Electric save money and we’re happy to pass those savings on to participating members!

To find out more, visit and look for the  H2O Select program under the myHome tab or call us at 843.369.2211. When prompted,  press ‘6″ for energy information and marketing programs.
