Want $50? One smart Brooklyn Park mom got a water efficiency rebate...and you can too!
The City of Brooklyn Park received a grant from the Met Council to give rebates to residents who purchase water efficient clothes washers, toilets and/or irrigation controllers. We recently met up with Tara Schell who received a $50 rebate on her clothes washer.
Why did you decide to buy a water efficient clothes washer?
My old clothes washer was more than 15 years old and not very efficient.
What differences have you noticed?
I chose my water efficient washer for its bigger barrel size (bigger boys-bigger clothes), and its water and cost savings.
ENERGY STAR certified clothes washers have a greater tub capacity which means you can wash fewer loads to clean the same amount of laundry. They also use about 25% less energy and 40% less water than regular washers.
