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. Rhode Island's Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is closed, but it is accepting applicants for a wait list.
Rhode Islanders may receive rebates on a variety of ENERGY STAR appliances. To qualify, the consumer must be a resident of Rhode Island with a street mailing address and the appliance must be replacing an existing older, less efficient appliance (older appliances should be recycled, the retailer will be able to help consumers with this). Online purchases do not qualify. Consumers are encouraged to check the availability of the rebates before making purchases; as well, consumers may reserve a rebate prior to making purchases. More information about availability and reservations of rebates are found at http://www.rirebates.com/, or by calling 1-877-359-5795.
