Alaska - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

December 19, 2011


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 16, 2010, Alaska's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in disabled Alaskans' households or the homes of seniors born on or before October 1, 1951. This program is administered by the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, freezers, washers, and dishwashers. Rebates are slightly higher for rural communities, where rural communities are defined as those not served by road, or the Alaska Marine Highway at least once per week.

To receive the rebate, a participating household must call the call center at 1-877-257-3228 to request an application. When the application has been returned and approved, the household will receive an appliance voucher. At that time, the household can purchase the appliances and return the appliance voucher and receipt to receive the rebate. For more information, see the Alaska Housing Finance Corporation web site.
