to Summary by DSIRE
Note: This program is no longer available. Program administrators announced its closure November 2011. According to Efficiency Maine, almost 2,600 homeowners participated in the program trading in older, less-efficient space and/or water heaters with efficient units. The below is provided for information only.
Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) 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 or territory program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state or territory before making purchasing decisions.
Homeowners in Maine are eligible to receive rebates for Energy Star products installed in their homes. The program is for replacements only; new equipment must replace a similar, less efficient item. Step-by-step instructions are available on Efficiency Maine's Web site. Rebates can be requested online or by mail. Equipment must be installed by a licensed contractor. There is a limited amount of money available for this rebate program, therefore rebates will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
