The state was distributing $1.3 million in rebates at the beginning of this month, courtesy of the federal stimulus.
Residents reserved all the rebate money within four days online or over the phone, but three weeks later, about 24 percent of those who reserved rebates have not submitted the required paperwork to receive the money.
Energy Office spokesman Seth Effron means that some have forgotten, some have lost their documentation and some may have mailed the materials too recently to be logged.
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.
If you missed the first round of Energy Star appliance rebates and want to take advantage of the second phase that began today, you better hurry. The funds are going fast. Read more about it on .biz.
