Massachusetts - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebates

November 08, 2011


The program closed November 7, 2011. The information below is for reference only.

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.

Residents of Massachusetts are eligible for a rebate of $150 for ENERGY STAR refrigerators and $50 on room air conditioners purchased on or after July 28, 2011. In addition, consumers are reminded that several Massachusetts electricity and gas utility companies offer additional incentives. See the Utility Rebate Programs in DSIRE for more information and check for eligibility.
