Electric Thermal Storage Heaters (ETS)

Off-Peak Heating with Electric Thermal Storage (ETS)
Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) is the technology of converting off-peak electricity to heat and storing this low cost heat for use in satisfying comfort requirements of a home or business 24 hours a day.

An ETS system contains electric heating elements which lie within special, high-density ceramic bricks.  These bricks are capable of storing vast amounts of heat for extended periods of time.

Power is cheaper when demand is low. Electricity is more expensive during certain times of the day when we use a lot of it due to operating dishwashers, washers and dryers, computers, blow dryers… it’s a long list.  The hours when the demand for electricity and associated costs are high as on-peak hours.

Off-peak hours are the times of day or night when excess energy supply due to low. demand.  In commercial and industrial applications, it is those hours when "demand free" power is available and generally when consumption within the facility is low.  

Socorro Electric offers reduced rates on electricity consumed during off-peak times.  These rates are called “off-peak rates.”

During off-peak hours, from 9P.M. to 6 A.M., the electric elements generate the heat that will be stored in the bricks of the ETS Heating Systems.  This stored heat is used to satisfy immediate heating requirements and to provide total comfort during peak hours.
