About the program

Butte Electric will offer a one-time incentive of $150.00 to our members for the opportunity to install a Demand Response Unit (DRU) on your electric hot water heater and a $50.00 credit for air conditioning units.  DRU’s are installed by a Butte Electric staff member and after installation the DRU will be controlled by Butte Electric on average between 2 and 3 times per month for between 2 and 4 hours per event.  If you would like more information on how to join the other 1,500 plus Butte Electric members already participating in the program please call 605-456-2494, 605-641-5187, or email us at and we will gladly explain the program in detail and help you get your $150.00 bill credit!
