New Water Heater Tech Saves Energy and Money

Reducing water heating load during higher cost peak times–either through an overall reduction in energy consumption by more efficient heat pump water heaters or load shifting through grid-connected electric resistance water heaters–can reduce energy costs across the system and help defer the need for expensive new power plants. Both types of water heaters can reduce the use of older, costlier and often dirtier electricity generating units. Heat pump water heaters provide “the most consistent environmental benefit” on a per-water heater basis through overall reductions in energy consumption, generally reducing carbon emissions resulting from water heating by about 50 percent. Electric resistance water heaters can also offer environmental benefits, although they are more nuanced; cuts in carbon pollution depend on the fuel mix used to generate electricity and the water-heati...
