U.S. to offer $300 million in rebates to consumers purchasing energy efficient appliances

UPDATE: Read current articles about appliance rebates here:

Read this if you are thinking about buying an energy efficient appliance in order to save money:

The U.S. Government will be providing $300 million in rebates to consumers who buy energy-efficient appliances for their home as part of the $787 billion economic stimulus bill to be signed into law as early as Tuesday, February 17, 2009, according to media reports.

The “Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program” will be administered by the states and help offset the cost to consumers who purchase energy-efficient ENERGY STAR appliances including refrigerator‐freezers, dishwashers and clothes washers.

In addition to federal tax rebates, consumers might also be eligible for utility or state rebates, as well as state tax incentives. Check the website for your state and your utility company for more details.

  1. After I read this article, I was sad to see that my state doesn’t offer any such rebates. It seems that only the states that house large metropolis’ such as LA & NYC get to benefit from such programs. It’s too bad that the “little guys” don’t get the same benefits.

    • Wow, I did not know that. You can always trying contacting your state congressional rep asking why your state does not “qualify” or participate, since it is a state-administered program.
