If you live in Illinois and ComEd delivers electricity to your home, then you qualify for a rebate that will save you a few bucks off a new, energy-efficient clothes washer which can help you save money off your utility bills every month.

ComEd is giving residential electricity customers a $75 rebate off the sticker price of qualifying ENERGY STAR–certified clothes washers at participating Chicagoland stores. Qualifying models will display the ComEd Smart Ideas sticker.

Upgrading to an energy-efficient clothes washer can help reduce the amount of water, electricity and natural gas you use each month. In fact, ENERGY STAR–certified clothes washers use about 37 percent less energy and about 50 percent less water. That adds up to significant savings, since the average U.S. family washes almost 300 loads of laundry per year.

If you’re not in the market for a new, energy-efficient clothes washer, there are still a few things you can do to cut costs when washing clothes.
