High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate

Get up to $125* back on the purchase and installation of a new, qualifying high-efficiency clothes washer (HEW). A new washer can use 40 to 60% less water and energy than older, top loading clothes washers. High capacity HEWs use 18 to 25 gallons of water per load compared to 50 or more gallons for top loading models. Use less water, less energy, and less detergent while cleaning your clothes better and with less wear and tear. New HEWs also remove more water from laundry during the spin cycle so loads spend less time in the dryer. The savings all add up to a great deal that can pay for itself in a few years. For a listing of qualifying clothes washers, visit the U.S. EPA EnergyStar® Most Efficient website. Rebates are available for all clothes washers list as “Most Efficient” except those containing silver ion technology.

Please note Sonoma Valley County Sanitation District customers are not eligible for this program at this time. Water customers of the City of Sonoma and Valley of the Moon Water District may be eligible to participate in the Sonoma-Marin Saving Water Partnership rebate program.

 

High-Efficiency Toilet Rebate

Get up to $150* back on the purchase and installation of each new, qualifying high-efficiency toilet (HET) from our List of Qualifying Toilet Models. HETs use a minimum of 20% less than the standard 1.6 gpf ultra-low flush toilets. Replacing your older toilet saves water and reduces wastewater without sacrificing performance. HETs are available in different flush types: single-flush gravity fed (like a conventional toilet), dual-flush, and pressure assist. Single-flush gravity fed HETs use the power of gravity to do the work just like the original, only with greater efficiency and less water. Dual-flush HETs are also gravity fed and save water by providing two different flush volumes. For solids, a full flush of 1.6 gallons or less and a reduced flush of 0.8 gallons or less. The full and reduced flushes average out to 1.1 gpf or less (one full and two half flushes). Pressure-assist toilets have a sealed vessel inside the tank that compresses a pocket of air inside as the water fills. When the toilet is flushed, the pressurized air forces the water rapidly into the bowl, creating a powerful, fast flush that has a “whoosh” sound. The flush can be slightly louder than standard toilets. For more information, please call (707) 547-1918.
