High Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate

The City of Petaluma is pleased to offer a $75 rebate to residential water and/or sewer service customers who purchase and install a new, qualifying high-efficiency clothes washer.
Clothes washing machines account for about 17% of water used inside the home. Running a conventional washing machine can use between 30-45 gallons of water per cycle.  New technology has replaced water guzzling clothes washers with high-efficiency models that use less water and energy. Most full-sized high-efficiency clothes washers use 18-25 gallons of water per load. These new washers are readily available in retail stores and are one of the most effective ways to reduce your indoor water usage.

Rebate applications are also available at most retail stores where you purchase your new washing machine.
