Tyco MI Electric Cable
Mineral Insulated (MI) electric cable is buried in the sand beneath concrete floors. As the cable is activated during periods of lowest electrical demand (usually at night), the sand and concrete are heated. Then, the stored heat is slowly released over the next day to warm your home. Because the system is charged during low demand periods, you can take advantage of Dakota Electric's lowest rates, resulting not only in safe, comfortable heating, but in substantial savings as well.

Electric Boilers Provide Versatility
For those who prefer a hydronic system, an electric boiler allows them to take advantage of Dakota Electric's low off-peak rates.
The boiler heats water, which is circulated through polyethylene pipe. During periods of high electric demand, Dakota Electric temporarily interrupts power to the electric boiler. You're rewarded with an interruptible off-peak electric rate for energy used by the electric boiler.
