Terrace residents can double-dip their Power Smart rebates.
Until the end of June, residents of Terrace can get $100 from B.C. Hydro and another $100 from the City of Terrace when they purchase select Energy Star washing machines.
B.C. Hydro is also offering $100 mail-in rebates province-wide for the purchase of select Energy Star dryers and refrigerators.
Some retailers and manufacturers are matching the B.C. Hydro rebate, bringing the potential savings up to $300.
Energy efficient washers save both water and energy, cutting water use by 40% and up to 25% for electricity.
Dryers can see a 20% gain in efficiency.
Refrigerators tend to be the most energy intensive appliance, and replacing one that’s 10 years old or older can save $40 a year in electricity.
