Rebates winding down

Most of the $1.3 million set aside for Energy Star appliance rebates has been used up this week.

The State Energy Office reports that as of this afternoon, 86 percent of the money has been claimed by residents who have bought energy-efficient appliances.

Only $183,425 remains in rebate money provided to the state through the federal stimulus package.

The rebates range from $75 for to $300, depending on the appliance. We previously reported details of the program here.

Rebates going fast

Two-thirds of the rebate money available for energy-efficient appliances has been claimed since yesterday morning.

The State Energy Office says that as of 5 p.m., 66 percent of the money -- about $850,000 -- has been claimed by residents seeking to save on Energy Star-rated central AC units, clothes washers, dishwashers, freezes, natural gas furnaces, water heaters and other items.

The offer began Tuesday and will last until the money runs out. Rebates range from $75 to $300, depending on appliance or equipment. Qualifying purchases must be reserved online or by calling 1-877-379-7323. Purchases made before Tuesday will not count.
