    Persuade me - Hybrid Electric Water Heater.

    I've run some numbers, but I'm still on the fence whether to replace my 12 yr old (and thus inefficient) gas water heater with a hybrid electric. Calculating raw per kilowatt hour cost equivalent (lots of assumptions here) current gas heater - 11c/kWh equiv. new gas heater with power damper -...
