Franklin County PUD's Residential Rebate Program offers a variety of rebates for energy efficiency improvements for homes located in the Franklin PUD service area. Rebates are offered on energy efficient clothes washers, water heaters, duct sealing, air source and geothermal heat pumps, windows, and weatherization measures.
