Duel Fuel/Electric Heat
Clark Electric’s Dual Fuel Program allows our members who heat by electricity to have the ability to receive special rates by participating in our Load Management Program. In exchange for allowing us to turn off the power during the peak hours, we will give the member a significantly lower rate on the electric heat meter.
Two meters are installed at the member's house; the first meter records the usage of everything but the electric heat. The second meter (the Dual Fuel-DF meter) records only the usage by the electric heat and if applicable air conditioning. The DF meter that measures the electric heat, will have a Load Management Device connected to it, which allows for the interruption of the power during the peak usage hours. This typically does not happen every day.
There are many forms of electric heat that qualify for our Dual Fuel program, but to qualify a backup fossil fuel source of heat must be available and operational. For further information on types of heat or Clark Electric's Dual Fuel program click on the brochure below.
