Incline Village General Improvement District (IVGID) Public Works will be offering the residents of Incline Village and Crystal Bay, Nevada, an inaugural Water Efficient Appliance Rebate beginning July 1, 2019. The rebate will apply to USEPA WaterSense certified toilets and USEPA Energy Star certified clothes washing machines purchased and installed within IVGID’s service area between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020.
The first 100 applications for high efficiency appliances are eligible for one rebate per parcel, up to $100 credit towards their IVGID utility bill. High-efficiency appliances eligible for the rebate include WaterSense toilets using 1.28 gallons of water per flush, or Energy Star washing machines that have a water factor of 3.7 or less.

High-Efficiency Toilets: Recent advancement have allowed toilets to use 1.28 gallons per flush or less while still providing equal or superior performance. Replacing older toilets with WaterSense models, the average family can reduce water used for toilets by 20-60%.

High-Efficiency Washers: utilize technological advances to deliver excellent wash performance while saving both water and energy. Resource efficient models use 35-50% less water and approximately 50% less energy. The water efficiency of clothes washers is rated using the term "water factor" to describe and compare its water use.
