Denver Water offers rebates when you purchase WaterSense certified washers, toilets and irrigation systems. I’m guessing many residential water suppliers across the country do. Forms are easily available online and at retail appliance outlets. If you don’t fill out the paperwork and take advantage of the programs, you are missing out.
In 2013 we got a $75 rebate for a toilet, which basically paid for the toilet. You’re allowed to do three per physical address per 10 years. And we got $100 on a clothes washer. The limit is one per customer per 10 years, with a purchase deadline of September 30 and a submission deadline of December 31 – which makes me think this particular rebate may be going away. Or maybe they just renew the deadlines each year. I’m not sure.
Anyway, we qualified for both in September. It took about 10-20 minutes to do the paperwork and we got a check for $175 within a couple of weeks. I wonder how many people don’t bother or miss the deadlines? Such a waste!
You should save water AND save money!
