Electric Vehicle (EV) Basics for Residential Customers

Increasing numbers of people are discovering the benefits of driving electric vehicles including,  reduced gasoline use, lower fuel costs as electricity is less expensive per mile driven than gasoline or diesel fuel and reduced air emissions just to mention a few.

Kaukauna Utilities has prepared for this EV trend by installing (4) public charging stations; however the most convenient method is charging at home; therefore Kaukauna Utilities is offering a $400 incentive for a Level II charger installed at your residence.

Level II charging requires a 240-volt outlet and a home charging system. A licensed electrician can tell you if your home is charging station ready.

  • You may need additional wiring to install a dedicated circuit and 240-volt outlet.
  • Depending where you live, an electrical permit and inspection may be necessary for the electrical work.
  • Kaukauna Utilities wants to know if you plan to install a Level 2 charger so we can better serve you. Please call Energy Services at (920) 462-0251.

If you live in an apartment or condominium complex, please talk with your landlord or property management company about your options for a home charging station.

Geothermal HVAC for Residential Customers

Your own backyard has the potential to be an energy source for heating and cooling comfort. Outdoor air temperatures fluctuate throughout the year with the changing seasons. In contrast, ground temperatures about four to six feet below the Earth’s surface remain relatively moderate and constant all year.

That’s because the Earth absorbs heat energy from the sun. A geothermal system circulates a water-based solution through a buried loop system to take advantage of these constant temperatures.

A single piece of equipment has the ability to heat and cool your home, while providing some or all of your home’s hot water as well.

Kaukauna Utilities realizes the benefits of in-ground geothermal HVAC systems and is offering a $300 incentive for a ground source Geothermal HVAC system for you residence.

Heating Cycle

During the heating cycle, the fluid circulates through the in ground loop extracting heat from the ground. The heat energy is transferred to the geothermal unit. The unit compresses the extracted heat to a high temperature and delivers it to your home through a normal duct system or radiant heat system.

Cooling Cycle

For cooling, the process is simply reversed. Because the earth is much cooler than the air temperatures on a hot day, the geothermal system removes heat from the home and deposits it into the ground. The fluid is cooled by the ground temperatures and returned to the unit for cooling your home.
