The City of Bellingham Water Use Efficiency Program offers rebates to single-family residential and commercial water customers. New in 2015, rebates are only available to City water customers that participate in the Community Energy Challenge (CEC) AND install a high efficiency toilet and/or clothes washer. The City has partnered with the CEC to offer home water assessments in addition to the energy assessments already offered through the CEC. The partnership combines efforts to reduce water and energy use, provide education and understanding of the water-energy nexus, and offer financial assistance to retrofit water and energy fixtures and appliances. It takes energy to produce and deliver drinking water, and it takes water to produce energy.
Please contact the Water Conservation staff at the Operations Division of the Public Works Department if you would like more information and to verify specific product eligibility.
