Yes, but from what I've read, they don't compare to the gas units. Most electric units require an upgrade of your electric panel, because the tankless will require 2 sometimes 3 dual pole 40 to 60 AMP breakers...depending on the size of the unit needed. Expect the lights to dim when you turn your faucet on.
If you plan to go electric still, the reviews I've read about the ECOSMART ECO tankless units have been great. Made in the USA! Sold by Home Depot online.
An alternative, not sure if it's economical would be to go with a propane tankless. If you go with a 420lb propane tank, it falls in the sweet spot for size and not having too be a distance from the house...I'm sure regulations are different in other States/County.

I'll have to ask, I'm sure the answer will be know, but I'd like to know why.
