Commercial High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate

The Commercial HEW Rebate Program is for the purchase and installation of commercial grade common area clothes washers only.  Residential grade machines are not eligible to receive a rebate through this program.

We are offering rebates of up to $500 per commercial high-efficiency clothes washer with a water factor of 4.5 or below. 

For complete program rules, please download the Commercial HEW Rebate Package below and review the application before purchasing.

Front WasherYou are eligible for a rebate if:

  • The property where the clothes washer is installed has an active SFPUC water service account.
  • You are a commercial or multi-family (apartment, condominium, etc.) account holder. For multi-family accounts, washer must be installed in a common area.
  • You are required to schedule an inspection for any site where 2 or more washers are rebated.
  • You have not received a washer rebate from us in the past 10 years.  Previously rebated machines will only be eligible for replacement rebate if they have been in place for a minimum of 10 years.


Download the Commercial High-Efficiency Clothes Washer Rebate Package below and complete the application, tracking sheet, W-9 and return with original itemized receipts that indicate washer(s) cost to the mailing address listed on the form. An on-site inspection may be required to receive approval. The name and address you provide on the rebate application must match the name and address you provide on your W-9 form. If you apply for more than one rebate in a calendar year, you must use the same name and address on each rebate application and this information must match your W-9.

Funding is limited and rebates are available on a first come, first served basis. Washers must be installed and rebate application must be postmarked within 60 days of the purchase date. We reserve the right to inspect the installations. It generally takes up to 12 weeks for processing after all applicant requirements have been met.
