Energy Efficiency Rebates on Appliances Available in CT

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Professionals, CT 203-206-0754 REB.0759001

The State of Ct has $3.4 million to distribute over the next few months to consumers who replace their old energy eating appliances with new energy-efficient versions. The CT Recovery Appliance Program launched on Monday, Jan 25 and continues through April 30. This rebate program is part of a national $296 million stimulus program administered by the US Dept of energy. Rebates ranging from $50 to $500, are available for specific types of Energy Star rated appliances that are installed in Ct residences. Appliances may be purchased from any retailer, but they must replace an existing appliance to qualify for a rebate.

The rebate dollars are expected to go quickly. Once the funds are depleted, it's unknown whether it will be replaced. State officials estimate the funds should provide rebates for more than 42,000 new appliance purchases.

      Appliance    Rebate level Minimum Efficiency
Refrigerators $50 Energy Star
Clothes Washers $100 Energy Star ---CEE Tier 2 and up
Freezers $50 Energy Star
Room Air Conditioners $50 Energy Star
Central A/C $500 Energy Star AHRI---Rated CEE Tier 2

 

The program is not retroactive, so no rebates will be given for appliances bought before Monday. Each Ct resident is allowed one rebate for each qualifying appliance and up to three room air conditioners. The rebate cannot exceed 50% of the cost of the appliance.

Here's what is needed: 

  • For additional information and rebate forms, go to: http://www.ct.gov/opm/cwp  Information can also be obtained by calling 1-877-947-3873
  • Applications are also available from Ct utility companies which have partnered with the state to administer the program. Rebate forms will be available in stores Feb 1.
  • Fill out and mail the rebate application within 30 days of purchase.
  • Provide a copy of the dated invoice or sales receipt showing the price, purchase date, manufacturer model no
  • The application must be filled out completely. Consumers must sign and submit the application, provide a copy of the sales receipt and include a copy of the recent electric bill. Expect to receive your rebate within 60 days.
  • Alll rebate forms must be postmarked by May 15.

Ed I just noticed the date that this program expires is the same date that the new Tax Credit expires for homebuyers to go under contract.

This is good information for consumers, Ed. I wonder how many of them will take advantage of it.

Ed - I had no idea that this program was available.  I can always count on you for keeping me up to speed with the latest news.   I'm sure there will be a lot of people who will want to take advantage of this.

Thanks for drawing this to our attentiion Ed, even though we are in Canada, we will check to see if we have rebates happening up here (we probably don't).  Our microwave blew a gasket last night, it just zapped its last breath!

William, the estimates are that as many as 42,000 appliances can be purchased with the funds available in the rebate.

Donna, thank you, I actually take the time to read a newspaper, what a dinosaur

Al & Peg, let's work something out. It has to be bought and paid for in Ct and delivered to a CT residence. the rest is your problem. Can you say road trip?
