CVWD announces new rebates for washing machines, hot water pumps

Showerhead

Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is offering two new water efficiency rebates for residential customers who install a new high-efficiency (HE) washing machine or a hot water recirculating pump in their home.

“We are excited to offer these new programs to our customers to increase their efficiency,” said Katie Evans, Director of Communications and Conservation at CVWD. “Many of our customers have already taken advantage of all of our existing programs and we pleased to offer them another way to reduce their use and help our community reach our sustainability goals.”

HE Washing Machines

HE washing machines can use about 25% less energy and 33% less water than regular machines. Qualifying washing machines must be Energy Star Certified HE models with a Water Factor of 4.5 or less. Eligible machines are listed at www.energystar.gov.

CVWD will offer a maximum of $150 rebate per installed HE washing machine. The rebate is limited to one per household for a single-family home or one rebate application per unit for a multifamily dwelling duplex, triplex or fourplex.

 Recirculating Pumps

Hot water recirculating pumps save water and energy by reducing the wait time for hot water to arrive at the faucet or shower. The compact devices return unused hot water back to the water heater.  

CVWD will offer a maximum $125 rebate, or the cost of the installed pump, whichever is less. The rebate is limited to one per household for a single-family home or one rebate application per unit for a multifamily dwelling duplex, triplex or fourplex.

These rebates are both pilot programs and will be available only until funds are exhausted. 

For both rebates, customers must provide a completed application, color photo of the installed washer or pump within 60 days of purchase and the original sales receipt or the contractor’s invoice if purchased through a plumber or contractor. 

The programs are not for new construction. Funds are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reimbursements are made after all program conditions have been met.

Applications for the rebate programs are available online at www.cvwd.org/rebates or they can be picked up at CVWD’s Water Management Office, 75-525 Hovley Lane, Palm Desert.

The Coachella Valley Water District is a public agency governed by a five-member board of directors. The district provides domestic and irrigation water, agricultural drainage, wastewater treatment and reclamation services, regional storm water protection, groundwater management and water conservation. It serves approximately 108,000 residential and business customers across 1,000 square miles, located primarily in Riverside County, but also in portions of Imperial and San Diego counties.
