CVWD Offering Rebates for Washing Machines, Hot Water Pumps
Coachella Valley Water District (CVWD) is now 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.”
Residential customers who install a HE washing machine can apply for $150 rebate from CVWD. The rebates are limited to one per household for a single-family home or one rebate application per unit for a multifamily dwelling duplex, triplex or fourplex.
As for new hot water pumps, CVWD is offering a maximum of $125, or the cost of the installed pump, whichever is less. This rebate is also limited to one per household for a single-family home or one rebate application per unit for a multifamily dwelling duplex, triplex or fourplex.
When applying for the 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. Applications 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.
Both rebate offers are pilot programs and will be available until funds are exhausted. Funds are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reimbursements are made after all program conditions have been met.
