Rebate Program For Energy Star Appliance Purchase
A new rebate program might have you thinking about appliances for Christmas. More than $18-million is available from the state of Texas and will be given out to those who purchase Energy Star appliances. All you have to do is fill out a few forms when you buy, and your rebate will come in about six to eight weeks. Local retailers say they're pleased with the program, and hope it drives holiday sales.
"We're hoping that it's going to get people to come out and make a decision to purchase an Energy Star appliance," said Armando Nieto with Goff's Appliances. "We're certain that it probably will because people like to get rebates back."
The program is run on a first-come, first-serve basis, and will last until the money allocated for rebates runs out.
