Wayne-White Will Now Stock & Sell
GE GeoSpring Heat Pump Water Heaters

Wayne-White Counties Electric Cooperative has made a decision to stock and sell the GeoSpring Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater for our member/customers at the special sale pricing of $1199 that we talked about in our Cooperative Newsletter.  This means that your actual cost is $799 when you subtract the $400 Wayne-White/Hoosier rebate.  You can achieve a payback of two and a half years  based upon cost usage data that we have supplied you with from both federal testing and localized usage at other Hoosier-member electric cooperatives.  You will then continue to save $30 a month on the cost of heating the water for your home compared to standard electric water heaters.  This unit is 253% efficient compared to 94% for other electric water heaters.
