Minnesota has just started their rebate program for Energy Star complaint appliances to promote energy saving statewide.
This is similar to the PG&G program here in California where I live, PG&E replaced my refrigerator for free with a more energy-efficient one TWICE. Of course, the energy savings over long term could easily pay for the fridge itself plus we are reducing our carbon footprint. It’s good to see that slowly state government is giving out money to promote green energy.
For those of you who have been waiting to get a new appliance, there never has been a better time.
According to the site MinnesotaRebate.com, you can get $200 rebate for washer, $150 rebate for dishwasher, $50 or $100 for freezer, and $100 or $200 for refrigerator.
If you are a Minnesota resident and you want to take advantage of this government program, you need to act now and go reserve your spot and funds are limited by first-come, first-serve.
Minnesota residents who replace an existing appliance with a new qualifying ENERGY STAR model purchased on or after March 1, 2010 are eligible to apply for the rebate. Residents are limited to one (1) rebate per household. Applications must be postmarked within 30 days of the reservation date. Approved applicants will receive a rebate check via mail. ACT NOW! This program ends as soon as funds are exhausted.
