Efficient Water Heating with Effective Grid Management
With its variety of precise controls and ability to respond to power variations in the electrical grid, the Steffes Hydro Plus™ water heater is the most advanced product in the grid-interactive water heating industry. Unlike traditional grid-interactive water heating products, the Hydro Plus uses our Grid-interactive Electric Thermal Storage technology to achieve superior energy efficiency and load management control.
Its patented Dynamic Dispatch™ energy management system provides flexible, fast-acting aggregation and real-time control, while presenting visibility, measurement, verification information to systems operating an aggregated fleet of Hydro Plus water heaters.
Power companies can use Steffes Hydro Plus water heaters as great tools for managing the grid, allowing for increased revenue, optimization of existing utility infrastructure and efficient integration of renewable resources. The Hydro Plus is available in sizes from 52 gallon through 115 gallons. The 80-gallon and larger sizes are classified as “Grid-enabled” to meet the requirements of the Department Of Energy for large capacity electric water heaters.
