Commercial High Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate

City of Petaluma’s Commercial & Multi-Family

The City of Petaluma is offering a $125 rebate for each high-efficiency commercial clothes washer purchased by businesses and multi-family units (apartment complexes, mobile home parks, etc). Washing machines must be installed at City of Petaluma water and sewer accounts only.

How Can Your Business Save Money By Conserving Water?
Businesses served by the City have lowered their water and sewer bills by participating in this program. Increased water efficiency can result in lower water and energy bills, reduced wastewater charges, reduced costs for wastewater pretreatment, and a positive public image for businesses that conserve water.
