Water Efficient Washing Machine Rebates

Up to $150 toward the purchase of a new Water Efficient Washing Machine!

District customers can now qualify for up to $150* toward a water efficient washing machine!  Front loading washing machines are much more efficient than older, top loading models. The latest Energy Star® Most Efficient 2018 rated washers can use half the water and energy of older machines. This saves you money on both energy and water bills.

Laundry generally accounts for 14-40% of a typical household’s water usage.  A standard washer uses 40-45 gallons per load and a high-efficiency washer uses 14-25 gallons per load.  The U.S. Department of Energy estimates the average loads of laundry per washer to be 392 loads annually.  The potential water savings from using a high-efficiency washer can range from approximately 5,000 -12,000 gallons annually (6-15 HCF annually).

*For large commercial and multi-family residential customers the high-efficiency rebate will remain as a WSIP calculation with rebate installments based on actual water savings as previously authorized under the current program.
