Everett, WA – Snohomish County PUD customers can tap multiple resources to save energy and money.  The PUD offers a variety of programs that provide incentives for customers to conserve.

Weatherization & Heating Efficiency
Get help with adding insulation, insulated windows, heat pumps (air source, ductless and geothermal) and thermostats. Customers can choose between a cash incentive or a 2.9 percent interest rate loan (electrically-heated homes only).

Efficient Appliances
The PUD offers rebates of $50 or $100 for approved efficient clothes washers. The PUD also recommends purchasing ENERGY STAR refrigerators and dishwashers because they use energy and water more efficiently, saving customers money in the long-run.

Get a Free E-Kit
Save energy with a free PUD E-Kit that includes a showerhead, two faucet aerators and two CFLs. Customers can order an E-Kit using the request form at www.snopud.com/ekits.

Discounted LEDs on Sale
LEDs – or light emitting diodes – are highly efficient and long lasting bulbs that have a lifetime of 20 years or more. The PUD now offers LED price discounts of up to 40 percent at many local retailers. The utility also continues to offer discounts for compact fluorescent light bulbs.

Free Recycling of Old Refrigerators
That old, energy-wasting second fridge is wasting you money – about $200 this year and every year you keep it. The PUD will haul it away for free, recycle it and give you a $30 incentive. You can even choose to donate the $30 incentive to Project PRIDE, a program that helps about 1,000 low-income customers annually with their winter electric bills. If you purchase a new refrigerator or freezer at Sears’ Alderwood or Everett Mall locations, you can schedule a free pick-up of an old unit to occur the same day as delivery. Ask a Sears sales associate for details when you purchase your new unit. For the recycling program details and pick-ups, call toll-free 1-877-577-0510 or visit www.snopud.com/fridgerecycling.
