High Efficiency Clothes Washer Program

Are you interested in replacing your clothes washer for a high-efficiency one? SERI is working together with Tucson Water to make it possible for low-income customers to upgrade their clothes washers and conserve water. On average, Energy Star certified high-efficiency washers use about 30% less water and 20% less energy than regular washers. Qualifying participants can purchase a new, high-efficiency washer for only $200, valued at up to $850 plus installation. Participants will receive a zero-interest loan from SERI that will breakdown as follows: $50 down payment when qualified and 6-month payment plan for $25 per month.
