  • Utility Relationship Options

For performance and flexibility, V-GRID controls are the 'gateway to the electric water heater' and the best choice for utility demand response, load management, RTP/CPP and grid-interactive water heating programs.

  • Utility Benefits
    • Product Features/Benefits

      Efficiency and resiliency are the key attributes of Vaughn electric water heating technology. The Vaughn ME (Maximum Efficiency) line of electric resistance water heaters are built with a full 3 inches of foam insulation, translating into lower standby heat loss and higher Energy Factor ratings (ME50 - .95EF, ME80 - .93EF). The Vaughn V-GRID 'Grid-Enabled' product line is similarly efficient, with the added bonus of electronic thermostat control and flexible communication interface. The Vaughn HPWH product line is coming soon and will set new standards for efficiency and durability, utilizing Vaughn cement-lined tank technology and offering tank life expectancy that exceeds compressor life. Lifetime tank warranties are available with Vaughn 'utility-grade' residential electric water heaters, all of which are built to last. Click through for specifications on Vaughn ME, V-GRID and HPWH product lines. Contact us directly for information on pricing and product availability.

    • Utility Program Opportunities

      Historically, most electric utilities have offered rebates tied to efficiency (EF Rating). The most proactive utilities have chosen to rent, sell or even give away electric water heaters to retain or expand market share of electric water heating in their service area. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in the water heater rental concept. Renting (or leasing) high-efficiency, long-life water heaters to your customers/members is a clear 'win-win' opportunity for the utility and the end-use customer. Rental programs effectively remove the 'first-cost' hurdle for homeowners by allowing them to access the most efficient and durable technology available simply by enrolling in the utility rental program. Vaughn Thermal Corp. is ready to assist with program planning, launch and operation. Contact us and put our experience to work for you!
