Kentucky - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebates

January 03, 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 program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state before making purchasing decisions. Note: The funds are exhausted.. Kentucky's energy efficient appliance rebate program includes 17 eligible appliances. Kentucky residents purchasing one of the eligible appliances to replace an existing, older, less-efficient appliance are eligible. Rebates will be provided as a Visa (R) pre-paid credit card. Eligible equipment/appliances and their rebate amounts are as follows (all equipment must be ENERGY STAR rated). Residents must apply on-line or call 877-813-3669 to get on the wait list and obtain a confirmation number. Kentucky residents receiving rebates are encouraged to recycle their old appliances.
