    Upgrade your washing machine to a high-efficiency ENERGY STAR® model

    ENERGY STAR® certified clothes washers can use about 20% less energy and 50% less water than regular washing machines. Utility companies and some retailers offer rebates for appliance upgrades, and the State of Maryland offer sales tax free shopping for selected ENERGY STAR® appliances each year over President’s Day weekend.
