Energy Rebates from Governor’s Energy Office Running Out
10 February 2011
DENVER, CO—The Governor’s Energy Office rebate program for energy efficient purchases is winding down almost a year after its initial launch in April 2010.
The final push of the program is being supported by local retailers such as Appliance Factory Outlet, which has been helping consumers replace existing appliances with ones that are energy efficient. Less than $50,000 is left of the original $3.4 million in rebates, which was part of a federal economic stimulus fund from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
The GEO is offering $75 rebates for clothes washers, $50 rebates for dishwashers, and $100 for refrigerators with proof of recycling; without it the rebate is $50.
These rebates can be combined with others, such as the Denver Water rebate, and Appliance Factory Outlet is helping consumers find them to save as much as possible on Energy Star certified appliances before the funds dry up.
As of February 10, about $38,000 of the funds remained available, and any qualified appliance purchased from April 19, 2010 and later can qualify for the rebate.
The company held two live radio events last Saturday with KOSI 101.1 FM, KBCO 97.3, and representatives of the GEO featuring give-aways and helping consumers fill out rebate forms.
In order to get the rebate, consumers can go to Appliance Factory Outlet and fill out all the appropriate forms to send them in. For more information on rebates, contact Appliance Factory Outlet’s corporate office at 303-782-5100.
