WATER & ENERGY Upgrades that pay YOU to Save
A new program for the Town of Windsor coming soon. Sign-up for updates!
Windsor Efficiency PAYS® provides qualifying* Windsor residents with:
- Immediate Utility Bill Savings
- New Water Saving Appliances
- Drought Resistant Landscaping, the single most important action you can take to improve our water supply
- No Upfront Costs
You can upgrade your appliances like washing machines, toilets, and showerheads for a more efficient home or apartment and enjoy immediate savings!
Windsor Efficiency PAYS® will enable you, as a Windsor resident, to make efficiency upgrades to your home or apartment and replace turf with drought resistant landscaping with no up-front cost and with the immediate net benefit of lower utility bills.
Windsor Efficiency PAYS® Certified Contractors have been pre-qualified and selected to install efficiency measures such as clothes washers, shower heads, toilets, compact florescent light bulbs, and dry-summer, drought resistant landscaping. (Windsor Efficiency PAYS® Certified Contractors are not Energy Upgrade California Participating Contractors but can provide referrals to Participating Contractors). Certified Contractors will contact qualified* Windsor residents in Spring 2012 to explain the Windsor Efficiency PAYS® offer that provides the installation of agreed upon measures with no upfront costs and immediate utility bill savings. Qualified residents may also have Certified Contractors install select co-pay measures, like refrigerators, that require an upfront payment.
An offer that works!
Windsor Efficiency PAYS® is simple because it allows you to “pay as you save” with no loan, no lien, and no debt associated with the payment obligation. Participants simply pay a surcharge on their utility bill that is guaranteed to be lower than their estimated savings! And, if you move or relocate at any time, the payment obligation ends; the next bill payer at your location gets the remaining savings and makes the remaining payments. If an installed measure fails at any time during the payment period and is not repaired, the payment obligation ends. Once the repayment term is complete you’ll benefit from 100% of the utility bill savings!
Windsor Efficiency PAYS benefits all residents and our community.
- Reduce water and energy waste and the demand for limited resources
- Reduce our carbon footprint and help protect our environment
- Reduce future water costs by reducing the need for expensive new infrastructure/supply
