$23 Million in Savings!
Mark your calendar for the April 16-25, 2010 Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate program - where Texans can get money back on new appliance purchases.
While the State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) will announce the rebate instructions shortly, below is an overview of the program – which includes $23 million in rebates for Texas consumers.
Information to Note:
Eligible Appliances: Rebates will be available for ENERGY STAR rated refrigerators, freezers, room air conditioners, clothes washers, dishwashers, central air conditioners, air source heat pumps, and hot water heaters.
Rebate Amounts: For clothes washers, dishwashers, central air conditioners, heat pumps and hot water heaters, rebate amounts will be determined by energy efficiency level or appliance type. You can qualify for rebates for up to two appliances from the approved rebate appliance list. The program will also offer an incentive to recycle old appliances.
Rebate Timing: The mail-in rebates will apply to eligible appliances purchased between April 16 and April 25, 2010. The 10-day period will coincide with Earth Day. Reservations for the rebates will be available two weeks in advance of the specified purchase dates (April 16-25, 2010). After the reserved mail-in rebates are awarded, any remaining funds will be rebated to consumers on a first-come, first-served basis.
Rebate Process: Specific instructions, which will likely include an 800 number and online reservations, will be made available by the SECO closer to the program’s launch date. We will keep you posted.
Important: Rebate program will not be retroactive. It will only apply to purchases made once the purchase period officially begins, April 16-25. Participants must retire an older appliance for a new, energy-efficient model to receive a mail-in rebate.
