Heating/Cooling - Dual Fuel
Problem: Heating costs, See Heating Cost Comparison, are a major concern with most of us. Rising prices of gas, oil and electric affect most of us. The burning of wood to avoid these high costs is a lot of work.
Solution: The "Dual Fuel/Off-Peak Program" was implemented by Dairyland Power Cooperative and Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative as a way to cut your heating costs and help the Cooperative manage load.
The Dual Fuel Program combines electric heat with an automatic backup heating source. The backup heat is implemented when the electric heat is being controlled during "peaking times." By controlling electricity during peak periods, the costs associated from high demand are avoided and the electricity can be sold at a lower price. See Rate H.
