Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

Texas will use approximately $23 million in federal stimulus funds for a mail-in rebate program for consumers who purchase certain energy efficient household appliances.

The U.S. Department of Energy approved the rebates for consumers who buy eligible ENERGY STAR appliances and replace the same type of old appliance that's functional. The Texas program will also offer an additional incentive to recycle old appliances. You can qualify for rebates for up to two appliances from the approved rebate appliance list below.

The mail-in rebates will apply to eligible appliances purchased between April 16 and April 25, 2010. The 10-day period will coincide with Earth Day. Consumers will have 45 days from date of reservation to install the appliance(s) and submit the paperwork for their rebate.

NOTE - The rebate program will not be retroactive. It will only apply to purchases made once the program officially begins in April 2010.

Rebate Process: Consumers will have an opportunity to reserve an appliance rebate by calling a toll-free number or registering on-line approximately two weeks prior to April 16, 2010. After the reserved mail-in rebates are awarded, any remaining funds will be rebated to consumers on a first-come, first-served basis. Shoppers will be limited to two appliance rebates and two recycling rebates per household.

NOTE - Reservations are not currently available. They will commence approximately two weeks prior to the April 16, 2010 program launch date.

Rebate Amounts: The rebates will be as follows:

If you have any additional questions regarding whether an appliance is ENERGY STAR qualified, please feel free to contact the ENERGY STAR Hotline at: hotline@energystar.gov or 1.888.STAR.YES (1.888.782.7937).
