The clothes washer is typically the second largest water user inside the home, after toilets. While older traditional washers may use more than 40 gallons of water per load, new high-efficiency models use less than 18 gallons, saving more than 50% in water and energy costs. High-efficiency washers also require less detergent, are gentler on your clothes, and result in shorter drying times. The U.S. EPA's Energy Star Program certifies clothes washers to assist consumers, and has developed new criteria to label exceptional products as Energy Star Most Efficient.
For 2017, the City of Napa is participating in the Bay Area Residential High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Program, partnering locally with the Napa Sanitation District to offer a combined rebate on certain high-efficiency models. For 2017 purchases made through December 31, models meeting Energy Star Most Efficient criteria qualify for a $100 rebate, comprised of $50 each from the City of Napa and the Napa Sanitation District.
This City/Napa Sanitation District rebate is supported by a Prop 84 Grant administered by the California Department of Water Resources.
NOTE: Qualifying washers purchased since January 1, 2017 are eligible.
Models using Silver Ion technology are not eligible for the rebate.

Special Note to Retailers: Additional applications and qualifying product lists for your store can be downloaded and printed from links at the bottom of the program web page. Point-of-purchase display materials will be provided this spring.
Washers do not have to be purchased in Napa to qualify for the rebate, but they must be installed at a site served by the City of Napa Water System. Follow the instructions on the application form and submit your completed 2017 application and sales receipt directly to the Truckee address listed on that form. Rebate application must be mailed no later than 60 days after purchase/installation (exception is made for January and February 2017 purchases). The City of Napa reserves the right to deny ineligible or incomplete applications. Rebates are available until funds are depleted. Program rules are subject to change.
Water customers of the Town of Yountville and the cities of St. Helena and Calistoga are also eligible for this regional rebate program, as are residents of Unincorporated Napa County.
