Lake Country Power offers a variety of electric heating and cooling options to fit the needs of your home, cabin or business.


These Energy Wise® programs are offered at a reduced rate to help lower your energy bills. Each program varies in the way it heats and cools, so you can choose the method that best meets your needs.

Notice: The annual Dual Fuel Equipment Test Sheds are scheduled for Thursday, October 27th and Saturday, October 29th, 2022. The test will include both Dual Fuel Unlimited and Dual Fuel Limited (i.e. Freedom Heating) codes. They will be performed between 6 PM – 9 PM CPT, unless there is a billing peak control event on these days.

Winter to summer changeover

— Off-Peak members mark your calendars —

ETS Space Heating – Wed., April 26, 2023

ETS Water Heating – Mon., May 1, 2023

Each spring the transition is made from LCP's Off-Peak winter strategy to its summer strategy. What does that mean to you? If you participate in the Off-Peak ETS (Electric Thermal Storage) program through LCP, your heating system will stop being curtailed (interrupted) each day during peak hours (typically 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. depending on your system). Note: this seasonal change does not affect Dual Fuel and Freedom Heat members, nor water heating program participants.

Thank you for your participation in these money-saving programs!

Off-Peak Heating

Off-peak electric heat systems convert electricity into heat during "off-peak" hours (usually at night). The stored heat is distributed later, as needed, to heat your home 24 hours a day.

Dual Fuel Heating

The dual fuel heating program allows you to combine electric and non-electric heating sources to provide you another great alternative for your heating needs. If you have a backup heating system that is capable of heating your entire home or business, along with electric heat as your primary source, you can bank on the savings and security of two systems.

Ductless Air Source Heat Pumps

Ductless mini-split air source heat pumps are highly efficient products that deliver warm or cool air directly into different zones in your home, instead of routing it through ducts.

Central Air Source Heat Pumps

With heating and cooling accounting for some of the largest expenses for homeowners, it makes sense for your space to be equipped with one high-efficiency appliance to keep those costs as low as possible – a central air source heat pump.

Water Heating

Lake Country Power's off-peak water heating program provides a low-cost water heating option for your home or business. A minimum of a 100-gallon electric water heater is required. The water heater is energized or "turned on" for a minimum of eight hours per day, generally between 11:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.

Ground Source Heat Pumps

Invest in a ground source heat pump (GSHP) and you will heat and cool with one technology. Ground source heat pumps make use of renewable energy – straight from the earth.
