Valley REC offers to members Rheem® Marathon® electric storage tank water heaters for purchase. Prices for non-members are slightly higher. The water heaters are available in sizes ranging from 30 gallons to 105 gallons. These highly efficient units are a great fit for the co-op's demand response program because power can be shut off to them during load control periods with minimal heat loss. Marathon units of 40 gallons or larger also qualify for the co-op's rebate program.
The water heaters feature 2-1/2 inches of polyurethane foam insulation. Marathon states the units allow only five degrees of standby heat loss in a 24-hour period. The units also boast a lifetime tank warranty. The seamless, blow-molded polybutene inner tank will not rust or corrode according to the manufacturer.
- Energy-saving Pipe Wrap Kit – reduces heat loss through plumbing lines
