Less than 25 Percent of Idaho Appliance Rebate Fund Remains

Posted By on Tue, Jul 27, 2010 at 12:35 PM

Those hoping to save a few bucks on a new energy-efficient dishwasher or refrigerator don’t have much more time to act until these extra savings expire. The Office of Energy Resources recently announced that the Idaho Appliance Rebate Program, launched in March using funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, has already used more than 75 percent of the original $1.2 million.

More than 3,600 rebates have already been issued through the program, including 1,346 rebates on clothes washers and 1,011 dishwashers. Consumers can receive a $75 mail-in rebate on a clothes washer or refrigerator and $50 on a dishwasher when replacing an older appliance.

Currently there is $255,178 remaining in the program, and once that is used up, no more rebates will be available. For a list of eligible appliances and instructions visit the Idaho Office of Energy website.
