Missouri - Residential Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (Energize Missouri)

October 18, 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 program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state before making purchasing decisions. Missouri's residential energy efficient appliance rebate program opened April 19, 2010 in order to run concurrently with the state's Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday. Effective July 1, 2010 residents are no longer able to reserve rebates on-line or through the toll-free number. All reservations must be made through participating retailers or program contractors. Only qualifying Energy Star appliances purchased on or after April 19th and installed in replacement of an existing appliance of the same type are eligible for a rebate. Rebates, while initially inclusive of most household appliances, are now limited to clothes washers as funding in other categories has been exhausted. Eligibility is generally limited to property owners; however, renters are eligible for rebates for clothes washers. Rental property owners and commercial enterprises are not eligible for rebates. All old appliances must be recycled. Rebates are limited to one per appliance category per address, up to a maximum rebate is $1,300 per address. Please see the program web site listed above for additional eligibility requirements and program information.
