Idaho - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

April 04, 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. Beginning on March 25, 2010, Idaho's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Idaho. Rebates will be available until funds are exhausted. This program is administered by the Idaho Office of Energy Resources. Rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, washers, dishwashers, heating and cooling equipment, and various types of water heaters, including solar water heaters. These appliances must replace an existing appliance. To receive the rebate, an individual must purchase the appliance at a store or contractor located in Idaho. Information on the availability of funds will be available on the Idaho SEEARP web site and can also be obtained by calling 1-877-223-6975. Rebates can be reserved up to three days in advance either online or over the phone. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals must complete the online rebate application form and submit supporting documentation. The rebate will be issued in the form of a prepaid Visa card. More information is available on the program web site.
