Ways to Save

Here are some ways to save on energy costs long term.



Cooking / Kitchen



New Appliances

When shopping for appliances, look for the most energy-efficient model in your price range. Federal law requires that yellow Energy Guide labels be placed on all new furnaces, refrigerators, freezers, water heaters, dishwashers, clothes washers and heat pumps. Use the labels to estimate annual energy costs when comparing models. And remember, Energy Star qualified appliances are the most efficient on the market.

Water Heater Rebates

Simply complete the application (WaterHeaterRebate_0.pdf) and attach the sales receipt plus a manufacturer’s description showing it is an electric water heater of at least 40 gallons. Then submit completed applications to EPB within 60 days of purchase by:
