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 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.

As of March 31, 2010, South Carolina's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for certain Energy Star appliances installed in households in South Carolina. This program is administered by the South Carolina Energy Office. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, washers, dishwashers, heating and cooling equipment, and various types of water heaters, including solar water heaters.* Installers of solar water heating systems must be registered with the South Carolina Energy Office in order for a system to receive a rebate. These appliances must replace an existing appliance and the old appliance must be recycled. Installers that install equipment directly in homes will reserve rebates online and provide the homeowner with a mail-in rebate form. If equipment is purchased in a store, the rebate will be automatically taken off of the purchase price. Equipment purchased online is not eligible to receive rebates. For more information, see the program web site.


*As of April 1, 2010, there are no more rebates available for central air conditioning units, heat pumps, gas furnaces and water heaters, including solar water heaters.
