Well not only would a new ENERGY STAR rated model save you money on your electric bill but you could also score a $250 rebate!
Under the federal stimulus act, the government has allocated $300 million to the states and 7 U.S. territories for appliance rebates. But you have to act fast because the program lasts only as long as the money does.
Eligible trade-ins vary by state and the program is already closed in 19 states so check the Department of Energy’s Approved List of Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Programs to see what’s available in your area.
For even more savings, you may also want to check out the rebates currently available on ENERGY STAR products where you live. Simply use the Rebate Finder on energystar.gov to select the types of products you’re interested in, enter your ZIP code, click the “Locate Special Offers/Rebates” button and the Rebate Finder will generate a list of all rebates and special offers currently available.
