Is your electric meter breaker on?

Cooler weather is on the way and the heating season is upon us.


Members, if your home or business has a sub-meter for an off -peak or all-electric heat rate, please make sure your heat meter breaker is turned on inside your electric panel. If the breaker is off, your electric heat credit will not be reflected on your bill. Thank you.


Off-peak rates run

Oct. 1 through April 30

Off -peak electric heat utilizes the concept of a dual-energy heating system, which simply uses two sources of fuel rather than one. With off -peak electric heat, electricity is the primary heat source. Using a control system, Capital Electric can switch from one heating source to another automatically. This maximizes efficiency and allows your co-op to offer you lower heating rates!
