Off-Peak Heating with Electric Thermal Storage (ETS)

Frustrated with unpredictable home heating prices? It may be time for you to turn to an off-peak heating solution; no other heating form, not gas, propane or fuel oil, offer the price stability of off-peak electric. And in today's world, a little price stability goes along way for your wallet and your piece of mind.

"Our house is a well insulated, 1500 sq. ft bungalow heated by a Steffes System. We purchase 84% of our power at off peak rates, largely as a result of the Steffes System. Our Home stays between 72-73 degrees Fahrenheit year round. Our annual energy bill is about half that of most of our neighbors…"
– Nov Scotia Homeowner


How does an ETS system work?
Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) systems convert electricity to heat during off-peak hours and store that heat in specially designed ceramic bricks for later use. Off-peak hours are those times during the day or night when electricity usage rates are down, allowing your electric company to supply electricity at a lower cost. Many times, power companies offer special incentives such as a reduced electric rates or special monthly heating bill credits to encourage off-peak energy usage. Our local power companies in the Brainerd Lakes Area, Crow Wing Power and Mille Lacs Energy Cooperative, offer special rates for ETS systems.
