Electric Heat

There are many different types of electric heat that satisfy your heating requirements.  These include Baseboards, Cove Heat, Wall units, Unit Heaters, Boilers, and Electric Furnaces. 

Please call to visit about what options would be best for your situation. The following link to Electro Industries will show you the different types of electric heat available:

Metered Electric Heat Program. Member is required to install a heat submeter on the permanently installed heaters in the building.  Typical installations are homes, shops, dairy or beef barns with electric heat.  Program runs from October 1 to April 30 each year.  The member receives a 2.9 cent discount on all heat kilowatt hours used for space heating between these dates.  Heat is not turned off.

Energy Efficiency Rebates. The Energy Efficiency Rebate program includes Ground-Source Heat Pumps and Air-Source Heat Pumps. Qualifying systems must be purchased and installed between Jan 1, 2018 and Dec 31, 2018. The program for the heat pumps is for new installation or for replacement of a conventional heating system. It does not include replacement of existing heat pumps. Roughrider Electric personnel will do a check on the installation and obtain appropriate documentation and receipts. Once completed and approved, Roughrider Electric will send a check directly to you to help defray the purchase cost. A maximum dollar amount has been set aside for the incentive program. When this amount has been met, the program will close. Roughrider Electric reserves the right to cancel the program without further notice. One rebate allowed per member.
