Appliance Rebates In Virginia Set For April 2010

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

Virginia has implemented its appliance rebate program in partnership with some utilities. Participating utilities will receive a population-based portion of the state’s allocation to augment appliance rebate programs operated by the utilities.  The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME) will offer the Virginia appliance rebate to all other qualifying Virginia residents who are not eligible for a utility rebate. Thus, any ARRA-funded rebate on the purchase of an appliance or other qualifying item, such as a heat pump or water heater, will be available to all Virginians.

DOE approved the Virginia appliance rebate plan on December 22, 2009. The planned program launch date is late April, 2010.

> Energy Star-rated appliances and other equipment will be included in the program. Rebate amounts and qualifying appliances and other equipment will be identified at a later date to be determined.  Rebates will not be available retroactively for purchases made prior to the official launch date of the program.

Eligible appliances in Virginia might include

·                  Refrigerators

·                  Clothes washers

·                  Gas storage water heaters

·                  Gas tankless water heaters

·                  Gas furnaces

·                  Air source heat pumps

The DMME may change details about the Virginia appliance rebate program up until the program opens in late April. Information on the amount of rebates, items that will be eligible for rebates, how rebates will be applied for and paid, and other program rules and guidelines will be added to the DMME website by late April, 2010.
