In North Dakota, the cost of energy matters. We use significantly more energy per capita than the average U.S. citizen due to cold winters and long-distance travel. While the cost of heating and transportation fuels is on the rise, the price of electricity has remained stable.
By participating in our voluntary dual heat program, participating members protect themselves from the volatile price of propane, natural gas, and fuel oil. The cost of off-peak electricity has remained low and consistent for more than a decade.
The dual fuel program is designed to reduce electric demand during peak times, saving members and the cooperative money. When electric demand and market electricity prices are high, an off-peak device in the home automatically switches from an electric source to a backup source, such as propane or fuel oil. This program provides members with the best value, even with increased fuel pricing.
We remind members if they haven't already, to schedule a summer fill from their vendor. This is typically the lowest price for the year.
- Make sure your backup system is working and that your fuel tank is full.
- In the event of no heat or hot water, first call CCEC or check our webpage for control status.
- Contact CCEC for programs and incentives if a water heater or heating system needs replacement.
