Residential Water Heater
Water heating is the second-largest energy expense in most households, accounting for around 18% of the power bill. That means the type of water heater and how you use it is very important. Water heaters and heat pump water heaters have come a long way in efficiency standards. New energy-efficient storage water heaters contain high levels of insulation around the tank to reduce standby heat loss, and heat pump water heaters, like your heat pump HVAC unit, utilize the air around them to heat your water. Both can save you up to $550 a year.
We understand cost is always a factor when upgrading your equipment so Clark County REMC would like to help you with that by providing a small incentive. Simply fill out the application in its entirety and send it in with your invoice noting the manufacturer/brand, model #, and cost of your new water heater and proof of your water heater’s UEF rating.
We also suggest checking out Indiana’s Residential and Homeowner Incentives webpage for more information on tax credits and their upcoming energy efficiency incentive programs.

For more than 30 years, REMC members have been able to go through their local electric co-op to purchase a water heater and have it installed at a great price from a great local company.
- Beginning January 2022, we will no longer sell or install water heaters for REMC members
- We know this is a big change from what we’ve done in the past, and appreciate all of the support you have given us in making this program a success
- However, as times change, we must adapt and meet the needs of today’s members
- With the emergence of solar power, electric vehicles, and battery storage, the energy landscape of 2022 is vastly different than it was just 5 years ago, let alone in the 1990’s
- To face these changes and prepare for the future, we must make room for new programs and offerings
Thank you for your understanding.
Members who are part of the TAP program should contact the REMC office during normal business hours to schedule a repair or replacement of their covered water heater. Emergency repair is not available after hours or on weekends. Please remember that the TAP program is only applicable if the original member who signed the agreement is still living in the original home. Agreements are not transferable to new addresses, new homeowners or to new family members living in the original home.
Warranty information was included with your heater when you made your purchase. Current warranty documents from State Water Heaters are linked below. If you experience issues with your new water heater within the first year, parts and labor are covered. After the first year, warranty repairs may still require you to pay for labor charges.
