The SFPUC has partnered with Bay Area water agencies to offer the Residential High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Program. SFPUC customers can qualify to receive a rebate of up to $100 for the purchase and installation of a high-efficiency clothes washer included in the program's Qualifying Product List.
Clothes washers account for more than 20% of indoor water use. Running a conventional washing machine, which can use more than 50 gallons of water per cycle, can add up to more than 16,000 gallons a year on laundry alone.
- The property where the clothes washer is installed must have a service address and an active water service account.
- You are a residential single-family or multi-family (i.e. apartment buildings) account holder or live in multi-family housing (i.e. townhouse, condominium) where you pay your water bill through rental costs or home owner association dues.
- The property where the clothes washer is installed has not received a washer rebate from us in the past 5 years. Please verify before purchasing.
- The clothes washer purchased does not contain silver ion technology.

Note: Program does not apply to our multi-family account holders purchasing high-efficiency clothes washing machines for common-area laundry. Funding is limited and rebates are available on a first come, first served basis. Clothes washers must be installed and rebate applications must be postmarked within 60 days of purchase date. We reserve the right to inspect the installations.
