Hendersonville’s Water Efficiency Rebates

September 6, 2012

The City of Hendersonville is offering rebates for citizens upgrading to water efficiency models of toilets, clothes washers and irrigation systems.Water conservation is a subject many Hendersonville residents are well aware of. Luckily, the City of Hendersonville has initiated a water efficiency rebate program to help make water conservation even more profitable. When you upgrade your old toilet, clothes washer or irrigation system with a more energy efficient model (those with the WaterSense or EnergyStar labels), you may be entitled to a rebate from the city’s water rebate program.

The City of Hendersonville has allocated enough funds to offer a total of 240 rebates for clothes washers and irrigation systems. Qualifying purchases will receive $75-$150 for EnergyStar labeled clothes washers and up to $200 for WaterSense labeled irrigation systems. Replacing your old toilet with a WaterSense labeled high-efficiency one can get you a $25-$100 credit.

A lot of water is wasted every time you flush with a regular toilet. Low flow toilets can save up to 5 1/2 gallons a flush over a regular toilet. Using an EnergyStar washer can save users around $70 a year. With a smart irrigation system, your Hendersonville lawn is only watered as often and as much as is needed. You never have to worry about overwatering your lawn again. Also, keep in mind that these are excellent selling points when you decide to put your Hendersonville home on the market in the future.

Only property owners or those individuals who are legally responsible for paying the water bill through Hendersonville Water and Sewer are eligible for any rebates. Each household is limited to two toilet rebates and one clothes washer and smart irrigation system upgrade per household. You can either pick up a rebate form at the City of Hendersonville’s Operations Center (305 Williams St) during regular business hours or download it online by visiting the City of Hendersonvile’s website here.

In an effort to encourage its residents to conserve water whenever possible, the City of Hendersonville is offering water efficiency rebates. Now, you can get rid of the old water-guzzlers, save water using more water efficient varieties and even make a little pocket change in the process. It’s a win for you, a win for the city and a win for the environment. You just can’t go wrong!
