Digital News Report – If you have been thinking about upgrading your refrigerator, your washing machine or your room air conditioning unit, this might be the time to buy a new energy efficient model because the California Cash for Appliances Program will give you money back with is Rebate incentive. The program will last for one year, but if they run of funds they will end it early.
It is for a limited time. You have to purchase your appliance from a local participating retailer between April 22 through May 23rd, you have to purchase eligible appliances and you have to recycle your old appliance with specified companies. Once you have done all this, you can fill out the rebate forms and get yourself a check in the mail.
California residents can get the following rebates:
- $200 for a new energy efficient refrigerator
- $100 for a new energy efficient clothes washer
- $50 for an energy efficient room air conditioner unit.
That adds up to a potential $350 in rebates from this program alone. You might want to check with your local electric and gas company to see if they are also offering a rebate incentive program. You might be able to save even more money.
