Summary

The Delaware Sustainable Energy Utility (SEU) offers rebates ranging from $25 - $200 to Delaware residents for the purchase and installation of Energy Star appliances in the state of Delaware. The program initially opened in September 2009 using SEU funding, but was expanded in December 2009 with funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) for the State Energy Efficiency Appliance Program. The ARRA allocated a total of $308 million for appliance rebates to U.S. states and territories, based on population, with the stipulation that individual state plans be approved by the Department of Energy (DOE). The plan for the Delaware's $838,000 allocation was approved in December 2009 and the state is now offering a program that includes additional appliances. The distinction between SEU-funded rebates and ARRA-funded rebates is important because the two programs apply to different appliances.

SEU Program - In order to qualify for a rebate, the appliance must be purchased between September 1, 2009 and August 31, 2010. Completed rebate applications must be postmarked no later than September 30, 2010. Rebates are limited to 2 per appliance type per installation address. The appliances currently covered* under the SEU-funded program are as follows (see program website for a list of qualifying models):

  • Top-Load Clothes Washers
  • Front-Load Clothes Washers
State Energy Efficient Appliance Program (ARRA) - In order to qualify for a rebate, the appliance must be purchased between December 1, 2009 and August 31, 2010. Participants must certify that the appliance replaces an existing appliance. Completed rebate applications must be postmarked no later than September 30, 2010. Rebates are limited to 2 per appliance type per installation address. The appliances covered under the ARRA-funded program are as follows (see program website for a list of qualifying models): 
  • Dishwashers
  • Room Air Conditioners
  • Gas Storage Water Heaters
  • Gas Tankless Water Heaters
  • Gas Condensing Water Heaters
The Delaware SEU is a non-profit organization created by the state of Delaware to foster a sustainable energy future for the state through conservation, efficiencies and the use of renewable energy sources. 


*Effective January 31, 2010 the program is no longer offering rebates for refrigerators, freezers, and dehumidifiers.
