Summary

The North Carolina Energy Office has reopened the Energy Efficient Rebate program for a third phase. Applications will be processed until remaining ARRA funding has been exhausted.

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 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.

North Carolina originally offered rebates for certain Energy Star appliances in two phases. Phase One offered 15% instant rebates on the purchase of Energy Star clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators and freezers from April 22, 2010 through April 25, 2010. Phase Two is offering rebates for Energy Star clothes washers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, central air conditioners, gas furnaces, heat pumps and water heaters, including solar water heaters, purchased on or after June 1, 2010.

The North Carolina Energy Office is using remaining ARRA funds to open a third phase of applications for rebates on qualified appliances purchased on or after January 1, 2012.

The appliance must be purchased from one of the program's approved retailers, and the 15% rebate will deducted directly from the purchase price at the store. Online purchases are not eligible for the rebate. Appliances must be replacing an existing less efficient appliance, and participants must either have the retailer properly dispose of the old appliance, or certify to the retailer that the old appliance is being properly disposed of or recycled.

Recipients of grants in the Hurricane Appliance Replacement Program are not eligible to participate.
