You can help the environment and receive a big rebate in return. If you buy an ENERGY STAR appliance from April 16 through 25, you will be eligible for a 20 percent rebate from the State of Florida. The rebate applies to various ENERGY STAR appliances including gas (not electric) tankless hot water heaters, refrigerators, dishwashers, room air-conditioners, clothes washers and freezers. In addition, ENERGY STAR appliances use less energy to operate, so you’ll save more money over their lifetimes. Plus, if you recycle your old appliance you could receive an additional $75. The offer is available to all Florida residents, but only on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Update: This rebate is not longer valid. Hopefully the state or federal government will provide more stimulus!
