Abbotsford and Mission residents looking to purchase a new washing machine can save up to $200 on the most energy-efficient clothes washers that will also help them save on electricity costs in the long run.
Until the end of June, customers can receive $100 rebates each from BC Hydro Power Smart, the City of Abbotsford and the District of Mission.
BC Hydro is also offering $100 mail-in rebates province-wide for the purchase of select Energy Star dryers and refrigerators.
Some retailers and manufacturers are matching the BC Hydro rebate, bringing the potential savings up to $300. All Home Depot locations are doubling rebates on qualifying Energy Star appliances and select Best Buy locations are also offering double rebates on qualifying Samsung Energy Star appliances.
Energy efficient clothes washers save both water and energy. A clothes dryer typically uses the most electricity of any appliance in your home, after the refrigerator.
