Is your washing machine on it's last rinse cycle? Nowadays, more brands are offering energy efficient choices. If you are going to purchase a new washing machine, you may want to explore a government program for Toronto's Water Saver Program.
If you purchase a high-efficiency washer with the sticker (shown above) on it, you may be eligible for $60 cash back plus a chance to win $2500. Some may say $60 is not a big savings but we need to look at the big picture. The City of Toronto reports that by 2011, it will help reduce 15% daily water use. Also, high-efficiency models use up to 40 per cent less water and 60 per cent less energy than conventional washers. The list of the selected models is provided on their website and download the application so that your name will be entered in a draw whereby you can be eligible to win the amount you paid for your washing maching (certain exclusions apply).
