CA Poised to Launch 'Cash for Appliances' With Federal Bucks
California is prepping to run a rebate program powered by $35 million in federal funds which will give cash back for appliances when the owner is ready to purchase a new, more energy-efficient model, according to an AP report published on abc7.
It's called The State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program, and was approved this week by The California Energy Commission. Although many had hoped it would start off late this year in time for holiday shopping, the program will most likely begin in April. The cash for appliances program "will give rebates for three types of appliances: $100 for clothes washers; $75 for refrigerators, and $50 for room air conditioners."
Currently there are multiple incentives offered through the state's "Flex Your Power" program for residential energy efficiency and to aid low-income households. You can search their site by zip code for offers in your area.
