Broward County - Energy Sense Appliance Rebate Program

April 02, 2012


The residential program closed on 03/16/2012. The business rebate will continue to be available until 04/02/2012.

Broward County is offering the Energy Sense Appliance Rebate Program to County residents and small to medium-sized businesses to encourage replacement of an old appliance with a new more energy efficient appliance. Up to $400,000 is available in rebates to eligible participants. The County expects 1,200 to 2,000 rebates to be issued to residents and 100 to 450 rebates to businesses. The program is part of a $1.24 million Energy Efficiency Conservation Block Grant awarded by the State and funded through the United States Department of Energy to help residents and businesses make the transition to more efficient appliances that will reduce overall energy consumption in the County while stimulating the economy and saving participants money on their utility bills.

Rebates will be made available to residents and businesses until March 16, 2012. Eligible Energy Star appliances for residents and businesses include:

  • Refrigerators - Receive $150 for refrigerators under 20 cubic feet but at least 7.75 cubic feet in volume or $250 for refrigerators 20 cubic feet or greater in volume. (ENERGY STAR freezers and compact refrigerators are excluded.)
  • Clothes Washer- Receive $150 for all sizes of washing machines.

Because the rebate program is directed toward replacement appliances, old appliances will need to be recycled or disposed of according to federal, state and local laws and regulations. Proper removal and disposal of appliances will alleviate emissions and ozone depleting substances and greenhouse gases from refrigerants.
