Cash for clunker appliances
April 22, 2010
Does your old refrigerator rattle while it guzzles energy like an SUV in need of a tune up? A federal government rebate program could help you rid your home of that clunker appliance. [KEYT]
However, you might need to act quickly. In some states, federal rebate funds have run out in just a few days.
California’s share of the $300 million federal rebate program is $35 million.
The program is designed to help residents replace older, inefficient appliances with Energy Star qualified appliances while simultaneously generating economic activity. If funds remain available, the program is scheduled to run from April 22 to March 23.
Retailer and consumers can track how much money is left or download rebate forms at the California Energy Commission’s Cash for Appliances website.
