Oklahoma - Residential Appliance Replacement Rebate Program

June 03, 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. As of 9:00 AM on May 8, 2010, Oklahoma residents can receive rebates on certain energy efficient appliances purchased from participating Oklahoma retailers. Before selling the appliance to a customer, retailers will check on the availability of funds, reserve a rebate, and print all the necessary application forms for the customer to submit. The state has $3.5 million in federal funds and rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds have been exhausted. Rebates are only available for replacement appliances, not first-time purchases. Participants will need to certify that the old appliance has been disposed of, and submit that certification with a completed rebate application.
