Burbank Water and Power is boosting incentives for residents who purchase certain energy-efficient home appliances.
As the weather heats up, the utility is offering higher rebates for customers who buy more efficient air conditioning units, pool pumps and “smart” thermostats, officials announced this week.
The size of the rebate for purchasing energy-efficient air conditioners depends on the type or model.
“Energy efficiency is a lot less expensive than investing in and purchasing new energy,” said utility spokesman Joe Flores. “We would much rather invest in the homes of our customers.”
