Laundry Appliance Rebates

Standard washing machines, especially those manufactured before 2003, and clothes dryers use far more energy than newer, efficient models. When you purchase efficient laundry appliances from our qualified washer and dryer lists, Seattle City Light will give you up to $250 cash back.


ENERGY STAR® Washing Machines:
  • Use at least 25% less energy and 40% less water – higher efficiency means lower utility bills and better for the environment.
  • Require fewer loads – No bulky agitators means more usable space for clothes. More capacity means fewer loads of laundry per week - and more time for you.
  • Reduce dryer time – Advanced spin cycles remove more water from clothes so your dryer doesn’t have to work as hard.
ENERGY STAR® washing machines are available at most big-box retailers as well as online.

ENERGY STAR® Clothes Dryers:
  • Use at least 20% less energy than a standard dryer – higher efficiency means lower
  • utility bills and better for the environment.
ENERGY STAR® clothes dryers are available at most big-box retailers as well as online.

Select High-Efficiency Dryers:
  • Heat pump dryers use 30 to 50% less energy – the most efficient dryers available for even greater bill savings and the least environmental impact.
Hybrid and Heat Pump clothes dryers may be available at Albert Lee or online.
