SMUD customers offered rebates
Residents of Galt and other areas of Sacramento County are eligible for two rebates that could save them $125 to $250 when purchasing high-efficiency clothes washers.
The Sacramento Municipal Utility District, which provides electrical service to Sacramento County, is offering the rebates on Energy Star clothes washers, which use about 60 percent less energy and 40 percent less water than conventional machines.
The washers also produce less wastewater and detergent while causing less wear and tear on clothing, according to SMUD.
