Louisiana - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

February 24, 2012


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 April 24, 2010, Louisiana's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Louisiana. This program is administered by the State Energy Office in the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, clothes washers, dishwashers, heating and cooling equipment, heat pumps, and various types of water heaters, including solar water heaters, which replace an existing appliance. Customers participating in the EmPower Louisiana HERO Rebate Program are not eligible to receive a rebate for the same appliances at the same address. Rebates must be reserved online or by phone prior to purchasing an eligible appliance. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliance, individuals must confirm their purchase online or by phone within 30 days of purchasing the appliance and must mail in supporting documentation. The rebate will be awarded in the form of a prepaid credit card. The rebate program opened April 24, 2010, and closed May 3, 2010, but reopened August 9, 2010. Any purchases made on or after April 24 are eligible for rebates.
