electric thermal storage heat

Start saving today and for years to come with ETS heat!

If you're looking for ways to reduce your heating costs this winter, you've come to the right place! Mainers continue to face high and unpredictable heating costs. We think it's time to consider another heating option - Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) heat.

Electricity prices have remained stable relative to the price of other heating fuels, such as the oil that most Mainers use to heat their homes. That means predictable heating prices without sudden jumps in price. Plus, ETS heat is easy to use and 100% efficient. Keep reading to learn more!

How ETS heat works

ETS heaters take advantage of electricity rates that cost less at night when demand is lower*. ETS heaters store electric heat at night, and provide heat that's available whenever you need it, day or night. ETS heat is comfortable, easy to use, and can save you money this winter and for years to come.

*Electricity delivery prices are lower only when using off-peak or "time of use" electricity delivery rates, such as rate A-LM or A-TOU.
