ENERGY STAR® Clothes Washer Incentive Program
Which appliance has a new technology in its spin cycle that removes more water? It is an ENERGY STAR® clothes washer, of course! The average American washes 300 loads of laundry a year. That is a lot of water and electricity being used to operate your clothes washer. With an ENERGY STAR model, you will use 25% less energy and 40% less water, and have a larger tub capacity. And, your clothes will get super clean with a “flip and spin” technology through a stream of water. Plus, the rinse cycle uses high pressure spraying for a thorough rinse with no soap residue.
If your clothes washer is over 10 years old, consider a new ENERGY STAR model to save water and electricity and earn a $30 bill credit incentive from PWC!
*PWC reserves the right to amend or discontinue this program at any time without prior notice.
Calculate the ENERGY cost of your Clothes Washer
An ENERGY STAR® clothes washer uses 37% less energy than a standard washer. (www.energystar.com). Washing with cold water, washing full loads, and selecting a shorter wash cycle can also save additional utility dollars! For additional savings, use the calculator below to see the savings when you shift washer use from on-peak to off-peak hours.
How it works:
- Select the type of washer you own
- Enter the number of loads you wash per week
- Select the number of loads you run during the peak hours
How it adds up:
- See the number of loads you run off-peak. The great the number, the greater your savings
- See your annual energy use and cost when operating your clothes washer
- If you run loads during peak hours, see the amount you will save if you shift to off-peak (note: Calculator assumes some typical use is during peak hours. If all you use is already off -peak, no additional savings will show)
- If you use a standard washer, see how much more you can save a year by purchasing an Energy Star clothes washer.
