Appliance rebates still available in Idaho, but they're going fast

Idahoans can still get rebates of up to $300 if they're replacing an older appliance with a new Energy Star-rated one, according to the Idaho Office of Energy Resources. The Idaho rebate program, which is funded by federal stimulus legislation, has nearly $300,000 still to hand out of its original $1.2 million; so far, more than 3,600 rebates have been awarded in Idaho. "If people have been waiting to buy a new appliance and get a rebate, they should act soon," said state energy resources chief Paul Kjellander. "We anticipate that funds will be exhausted by the end of August, perhaps earlier." Click here for more info. Kjellander's office calculates that people who replace older appliances can save the amount of the rebate or more every year just from their energy savings, because the newer ones are more efficient.
