Old pool pumps can run for extended hours and can consume large amounts of electricity. Swapping out an old pump for a new variable speed high efficiency one can save you big bucks!
The City of Palo Alto Utilities offers a $200 pool pump rebate for any pump that is a variable speed, high efficiency model. There about 350 different models of high efficiency variable speed pool pumps available. Any variable speed pool pump will qualify (single speed and dual speed do not qualify).
You must obtain a City permit and pass a final inspection to be eligible for a rebate.
