Utah - Cash For Appliances Rebate Program

November 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 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.

Utah residents who purchase qualifying energy efficient appliances between May 12, 2010 and December 31, 2010 are eligible for a rebate from the state while funds are available. Rebates are only available for replacement products. First-time purchases do not qualify. It is recommended, but not required that the old appliance be recycled, but it must be disposed of. Residents may receive up to two rebates per household per appliance type. Full details and rebate application forms are available at the website above.
