New Mexico - Residential Energy Efficiency Rebate Program

December 21, 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. New Mexico is providing $200 rebates on energy efficient gas furnaces purchased from April 22, 2010 through December 31, 2010 or whenever funds run out. The program originally included rebates for clothes washers and refrigerators, but funding for those appliances has run out. Of the $1,663,000 in total funding for this program, $463,000 was reserved specifically for gas furnaces, with the remainder being shared between clothes washers and refrigerators. This program is not using a reservation system. Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis based on the postmark date of the completed application and other required documentation. Participants must buy an furnace first, then mail in their rebate application, a copy of the sales receipt and a copy of a recent electricity bill.
