Mississippi - Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

July 16, 2010


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 April 22, 2010, Mississippi's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Mississippi. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, freezers, washers, dishwashers, heating and cooling equipment, various types of water heaters, and heat pumps, including geothermal heat pumps. These appliances must replace an existing appliance. Rebates will be available until funds are exhausted. This program is administered by the Mississippi Development Authority. To receive the rebate, an individual must purchase the appliance at a store in Mississippi and pay Mississippi sales tax on the purchase of the appliance. Information on the availability of funds will be available online and can also be obtained by calling 877-304-4451. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals must complete the online rebate application form or apply over the phone and must submit supporting documentation. More information is available on the program web site.
