Coquitlam offers rebate on energy-efficient washers

Residents can collect $100 for buying new appliance under city, BC Hydro program

Coquitlam residents thinking of replacing their washer appliance could get a $100 rebate for upgrading to energy-efficient models before May 31.

Anyone buying and installing an appliance that qualifies can apply for the rebate up until May 31, or until funding runs out, at BC Hydro’s website powersmart.ca/appliances.

It’s a joint program offered every spring and fall by the city and BC Hydro, which also offers other appliance rebate programs on its website.

The city said residents not only get the rebate their water use can be cut by almost 40 per cent and electricity by 65 per cent.

Hydro estimates the program has saved an average of 37.2 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions and four million litres of water per year in Coquitlam, equivalent to the emissions of eight vehicles and two Olympic-sized swimming pools of water.

The washers must be purchased between April 5 an May 31 by Coquitlam residents.
