GE Appliances informed Hot Water Solutions they will cease producing the GE GeoSpring heat pump water heater at the end of 2016. It is our understanding GE will continue supporting the product through 2016, and honor all components of the product warranty per existing customer purchase agreements.  The current product promotion will continue through December 31, 2016 as planned.

 

Hot Water Solutions remains confident in heat pump water heater technology and the value it provides to Northwest customers. Our team does not anticipate GE’s exit from the market will disrupt long term program goals. In the short term, the GE Every-Door-Direct-Mail (EDDM) campaign scheduled for Q4 will be put on hold. We are discussing potential promotion opportunities with other partners, and will communicate those opportunities when confirmed.

 

GE has been a collaborative partner; we greatly appreciate all they’ve done to accelerate the adoption of heat pump water heaters. While unanticipated, this development presents the region with the opportunity to refocus and expand our efforts with leading U.S. electric water heater manufacturers. We’ve spoken with these manufacturer partners this week who have reiterated their commitment to the product and their collaboration with the Northwest. Together, Hot Water Solutions and Northwest utilities will continue building on the momentum we’ve created in the market.

Perhaps this is just a temporary hold while the newer transcritical CO2 heat pumps are being tooled up.
