Cash for appliances in Wash.

OLYMPIA, Wash. - Many homeowners may not realize their appliances are a big energy drain, and a drain on their wallet. Cash for Appliances Washington now available throughout Washington State, offers consumers extra cash back to help them make the switch to a new energy-efficient refrigerator or clothes washer.

Cash for Appliances Washington rebates are only available until funds run out. The program offers $100 cash back on new, qualified ENERGY STAR® clothes washers and $75 on new ENERGY STAR® refrigerators when the old unit is recycled. These cash-back incentives are in addition to the incentives offered through Washington utilities for purchasing new and recycling old appliances.

"Washington has an objective to improve statewide per capita energy efficiency by 10% by 2012, towards a goal of 20% by 2020. We stimulate the appliance marketplace by offering consumers a good reason to purchase a new appliance. We reduce water and energy consumption which helps preserve the environment of our state, and consumers reduce their long-term energy bills," says Governor Gregoire.

The program is expected to result in 15,000 fridges and 45,000 clothes washers being replaced by new efficient models, saving Washingtonians approximately $1,006,607 in energy costs, saving 355 million gallons of water and preventing 8042 tons (16,083,192 lbs.) of CO2 annually.

"In addition to providing a nice incentive for consumers to switch to high-efficiency appliances, which in turn reduces their monthly utility bills, Cash for Appliances Washington is also providing a needed boost to retailers as they struggle through this slow economic recovery. It's a win-win for Washington," said Rogers Weed, Director of the Washington State Department of Commerce.

All Washington State households are eligible to receive one clothes washer and one refrigerator rebate. Consumers must buy their appliance from a Washington State retailer on or after March 15, 2010. Products that qualify for the rebate are ENERGY

STAR® refrigerators greater than 9 cubic feet and ultra-high efficiency ENERGY STAR® clothes washers Modified Energy Factor (MEF) greater or equal to 2.46 and Water Factor (WF) less than or equal to 4.

Additional information including eligibility requirements, qualified appliances as well as the application form and instructions are available at retail locations or at  www.cashforapplianceswa.com.

This program is Funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and administered by the Washington State Department of Commerce.
