It looks like we may have to wait until spring for the Appliance Rebate program to take effect. States have a deadline of October 15, 2009 to submit their plans to the Department of Energy outlining how their programs will work, what products will qualify and the rebate amounts for each product.
However even with the deadline quickly approaching, experts are expecting it to take months for states to actually get their programs together, test them out and for the Department of Energy to sign off on them.
For more information about the Appliance Rebate Program, visit the US Department of Energy.
On the homepage of the US Department of Energy, you’ll see “In Your State” on the left side of the page. From there, you can choose your state and go directly to the Department of Energy homepage for your state.
