Green Rebate Programs
Water Efficiency Program

Reduce your water consumption for almost anything that uses water.

High-Efficiency Clothes Washers

The High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate is an energy and water conservation incentive program that offers Riverside Public Utilities' residential customers a chance to replace their existing high-energy and water use clothes washer with high-efficiency clothes washers (HECW).

HECW must be Energy Star-rated and have a water factor of 4 or less per load.

 


 

What are the rebate amounts?
The level of incentive on qualified units is $160* for RPU water customers.

There is also an energy rebate incentive of $75 available to RPU electric customers.

If a customer receives both water and electric services from RPU, they could receive up to $235 for the installation of a qualified High-Efficiency Clothes Washer.

* Special drought response funding for a limited time only, subject to funding availability.  Applicants will receive the increased rebate amount no matter the the stated rebate value on the version of rebate form submitted.
