Energy Star Rebates

Get Paid to Buy an Energy Star Appliance

We were questioning about Energy Star Rebates and who qualifies for one so we did some research. Our first question was:

1. What are these appliance rebates and who is paying for them?

When the U.S. government decided to implement the American Recovery and Reinvestement Act they added what's called the Energy Star Rebate Package. The government has since allotted $300 million towards the purchases of Energy Star appliances.

The reason for this addition was in the hopes that all of the purchases of these new energy star appliances would help stimulate the economy and in turn create new jobs as well as decrease the amounts of energy and and water used in the average household.

Each state was allotted a certain amount of money and then required to file an application to receive it's portion of the monies by August 15, 2009. Then they need to follow it up by October 15 with a complete application laying out the details of how they plan to use and dispurse the monies they receive as well as how they plan on recycling appliances that will be discarded.

The states should receive the first 10% of their monies with the filing of the application and should get the rest by Nov. 30, 2009.


2. Which Energy Star Appliances are Covered by the Rebate?

The following is a list of all of the different types of appliances that the Energy Star Rebates cover:
