Cash For Appliances Nearing An End

OLYMPIA, WA – They say all good things must come to an end, and for Cash for Appliances Washington, the finish line is now in sight. Washington residents need to act now if they want to receive rebates for upgrading to new ENERGY STAR® appliances. These rebates will only be available until the money runs out, and with less than $400,000 remaining, that day is rapidly approaching.

The success of Cash for Appliances Washington is easy to measure. In the past year, the program has encouraged approximately $35 million in retail sales, delivered over $5 million in rebates, and helped over 35,000 people save energy costs by upgrading to energy-saving ENERGY STAR® appliances. Washington residents are seeing savings when they purchase these new appliances, and also when they look at their monthly energy bills.

Cash for Appliances Washington offers cash rebates on a variety of ENERGY STAR® appliances, including refrigerators, clothes washers, dishwashers, water heaters, and ductless heat pumps. Additional incentives may also be available to consumers through their Washington gas or electric utility.

"During this final phase of Cash for Appliances, processing times and call center hold times may be significantly longer," said Rebecca Stillings, Program Manager. "Rebates will continue to be paid on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are gone, and will be available for all appliance categories while funds last."

Program Reminder: Applications must be completed, signed, and accompanied by all required documentation, including model and serial numbers for all new appliances. Refrigerators must show proof of recycling. Ductless air source heat pumps must replace a primary heat source. Applications received with incomplete or missing information will be returned and funds cannot be held while awaiting the resubmission of a completed form. Please check the website for all program requirements. All Washington State residents are eligible for the program.

For more details, including eligibility requirements, qualifying appliances, and the rebate application form, visit www.cashforapplianceswa.com.

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