Energize Missouri Appliance Rebate Program

Wednesday, January 27th, 2010

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources’ Energy Center will receive $5,672,000 in federal funds from the U.S. Department of Energy to help citizens purchase energy-efficient appliances as part of the Government Appliance Rebate Program. The Department of Natural Resources plans to launch the program April 19, 2010, to run concurrently with the “Show Me Green ENERGY STAR Sales Tax Holiday.

 

The Missouri Appliance Rebate Program will include ENERGY STAR appliances with different rebate levels for each product, how rebates will be processed and a recycling plan for old appliances.

 

The Energize Missouri Appliance Rebate program will help Missourians buy appliances at lower costs, reduce home utility expenses, and benefit Missouri businesses by stimulating sales of energy efficient appliances. 

 

The MO appliance rebate department will issue rebates for the following items that are ENERGY STAR qualified. Purchases of these ENERGY STAR qualified appliances and equipment prior to the start of the program in Missouri will not be eligible for rebates. After commencement of the program, rebates will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis until all rebate funding is depleted. 

 

Eligible appliances for the MO Rebate include:

·         Gas Furnaces – $125

·         Air Source Heat Pumps – $250

·         Central Air Conditioning – $100

·         Water Heaters-Gas Condensing – $150

·         Water Heaters-Gas Storage – $100

·         Water Heaters-Gas Tankless – $100

·         Water Heaters-Solar (With Gas Backup) – $500

·         Water Heaters-Electric Heat Pump – $150

·         Water Heaters-Solar (With Electric Backup) – $500

·         Clothes Washers – $75

·         Dishwashers – $75

Now that the U.S. DOE has approved Missouri’s program plan, the state will select a contractor to manage and implement the program. A consumer information line and eligibility criteria will be established and announced once the implementation contractor has been selected.

Missouri residents should also check with their utility providers for other rebates that may be available for energy efficient equipment and appliances. Many utility companies offer rebates for purchasing energy efficient home appliances and equipment. When other utility rebates or incentives exist, the addition of the new Energize Missouri Appliance Rebate will increase the total amount a Missouri household may receive for replacing their qualified appliances or systems. In areas of the state where utility-based rebates are not offered, the Energize Missouri Appliance Rebate will stand alone.
