Puget Sound Energy and Cascade Water Alliance teamed up to offer instant rebates on high-efficiency showerheads.
PSE customers can receive a $10 instant rebate off several WaterSense showerhead models. The after-rebate price to customers ranges from 95 cents and $27, depending on the model.
WaterSense showerheads use no more than 2 gallons of water per minute; standard showerheads use 2.5 gpm or more.
In order to qualify, customers must live in a single-family property or attached housing of four units or less, and use PSE electricity or natural gas to heat water. The rebate is limited to two showerheads per household.
“EPA-certified WaterSense premium-efficiency showerheads are among the best showerheads available and use up to 20 percent less water than standard showerheads,” Cal Shirley, PSE energy efficiency services vice president, said in a release. “We are excited to work with Cascade Water Alliance to bring these rebated showerheads to our customers to help them save water and energy while reducing their utility bills.”
Bellevue-based PSE serves more than 1 million electric customers and almost 750,000 natural gas customers in Western Washington, including Issaquah.
The regional Cascade Water Alliance includes the Sammamish Plateau Water and Sewer District, Issaquah and Bellevue, plus other Eastside and South King County cities and water districts. The agency serves about 400,000 residents and 22,000 businesses.
