Consumer Rebate Program Continues to Offer Ways to Save Money and Water
LOS ANGELES (July 19, 2018) — The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) recently announced an increase to its high-efficiency clothes washer rebate from $300 to $400. The clothes washer rebate is just one of the many LADWP programs offered to residential and commercial customers to encourage continued water conservation.
As a public utility, LADWP makes these programs available to assist customers in using water more efficiently as well as saving money and resources, all while becoming better stewards of the environment.
High-Efficiency clothes washers use 55% less water than standard clothes washers, reducing water use by about 11,000 gallons a year. Clothes washers represent a significant amount of indoor water use—20-25%—and energy demand. Customers can reduce their environmental footprint and their monthly utility bill by taking advantage of this rebate.
During this last year, residential customers received rebates for approximately 4,600 high-efficiency clothes washers, which will save 49 million gallons of water per year — enough to supply water to approximately 450 homes.
“In recent years, millions of residential and commercial customers have risen to the occasion to conserve a tremendous amount of water,” says Penny Falcon, LADWP Water Conservation Policy Manager. “Offering our customers incentives not only lowers their bill, but further promotes sustainable living and water conservation as a California way of life.”
In addition to high-efficiency clothes washers, LADWP offers incentives and rebates on a wide variety of water and energy-saving upgrades. These include landscape transformation rebates at $2 per square foot; rain barrel rebates at $50 per barrel; $100 rebates for premium high-efficiency toilets; rebates on programmable thermostats up to $75; and up to a $500 rebate to offset the purchase of a qualifying electric vehicle (EV) charger.
