Residential Conservation Rebates
The City of Port Angeles offers rebates to their electric utility customers to help defray the cost of eligible energy-saving home improvements. Read on for more information on these rebates, and to learn about the different ways you can conserve and save.
Energy conservation rebates are available for air sealing, increasing insulation levels, installing energy-efficient windows, and heat pump conversions. For more information, please see our Residential Energy Conservation Rebates brochure (PDF) and our Energy Efficiency for Residents page.
Mercury currently is an essential component of CFLs, and is what allows the bulb to be an efficient light source. No mercury is released when the bulbs are intact or in use. Many manufacturers have taken significant steps to reduce mercury used in their fluorescent lighting products. Information on disposal and clean-up of broken CFLs and mercury is available on Energy Star's® FAQ sheet (PDF).
As of January 1, 2015, Washington state residents can recycle 10 or less fluorescent tubes, and other mercury-containing lights, at no charge.
Lights accepted for recycling by the LightRecycle Washington program include fluorescent tubes (straight or curved), compact fluorescent lights (CFLs), and high intensity discharge lights (HIDs). The program does not accept lighting fixtures or ballasts.
LightRecycle Washington is funded by an environmental handling charge, or “EHC.” An EHC of $0.25 per light will be added to all mercury-containing lights sold at retail stores in Washington state.
