Puget Sound Energy residential electric and natural gas customers can now save water, energy, and money without sacrificing on performance or style by purchasing energy efficient showerheads. The $10 instant-rebated WaterSense-labeled premium-efficiency showerheads are being made available courtesy of a joint effort of PSE and Cascade Water Alliance.
“EPA-certified WaterSense premium-efficiency showerheads are among the best showerheads available and use up to 20 percent less water than standard showerheads,” said Cal Shirley, vice president of Energy Efficiency Services for PSE. “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.”
PSE customers can receive a $10 instant rebate off one of several different WaterSense showerhead models. Depending on the model, the after-rebate price to customers ranges between 95 cents and $27. Customers can receive the rebated premium-efficiency showerhead by:
- Ordering a showerhead online and have it shipped directly home.
- Printing an online coupon and redeem it for qualifying models at participating Lowe’s stores from March 15 until May 15, 2011.
Water heating is the second largest energy user in the home. Using less water for showers reduces electricity or natural gas use to heat water. WaterSense showerheads use no more than 2 gallons of water per minute (gpm), while standard showerheads use 2.5 gpm or more. Taking a five minute shower with a WaterSense showerhead saves more than 2.5 gallons of water per shower compared to standard showerheads. In addition to saving water, WaterSense premium-efficiency showerheads don’t compromise shower quality compared to standard showerheads.
To qualify, customers must be living in an existing single-family property or attached housing with four units or less, and heat their water with electricity or natural gas from PSE. The rebate is limited to two showerheads per household.
