Summary

Note: Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a total of $300 million to U.S. states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia to establish rebate programs for new energy-efficient appliances that replace existing appliances in homes. Each state and territory has designed its own program. Rebates will be available until the state program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state before making purchasing decisions. This program closed on July 15, 2010. This information is for reference only.

Connecticut's residential energy efficient appliance program is open from the January 25, 2010 through July 15, 2010. Eligible equipment, including Energy Star refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners (room and central A/C), and clothes washers must replace existing, older equipment and must be installed in Connecticut residences. The older equipment must be recycled according to state standards. See the website for application forms and additional application instructions.

Water heating systems were added to the program and the start date for eligible water heater systems is April 1, 2010 and the end date is July 15, 2010. Electric heat pump water heaters are eligible for $400 rebate, natural gas or propane gas storage water heaters are eligible for $100 or $200 depending on efficiency, natural gas or propane gas tankless water heater are eligible for $250 rebate, and solar water heaters are eligible for $400.
