Today we launched the Department of Energy Resources’ (DOER) Massachusetts Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program and we hope you take advantage of it. Any applicant with a valid Massachusetts residential address is eligible to trade in his/her existing room air conditioner and/or refrigerator for new ENERGY STAR® qualified models. Eligible refrigerators are 7.75 cu ft or greater.

The program started with $2 million available to replace approximately 20,000 inefficient refrigerators and room air conditioners. The ENERGY STAR® appliances purchased through this program are estimated to save around 1.8 million kilowatt hours in a year, or enough electricity to power 250 homes.

Through this program, customers will lower their long-term electricity costs and save energy. Old appliances don’t have to be in working condition for a customer to qualify for a rebate, since they will be recycled after the trade in.

We’ve also set aside $100,000 of the program’s funding and waived the appliance exchange portion of the program for residents affected by the tornadoes earlier this year in western Massachusetts.

Mass Save (or your city or town, if you get your power through a municipal light plant) may also offer additional rebates to complement this program, providing further upfront savings.

For more information about which retailers to visit, the status of available rebate funding or how the program works call toll free (877) 574-1128 or visit www.massenergyrebate.com .
