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 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.
