NEWARK – The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities and New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™ announced the April 1 launch of the federally funded appliance rebate program.
The rebates are part of the $8.3 million the state received from American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding, which is being used to encourage all New Jersey residents to purchase Energy Star® qualified home appliances. The U.S. Department of Energy approved a proposal the BPU submitted to receive the funds last December.
“The federally funded rebates give New Jersey residents an opportunity to upgrade their appliances to Energy Star qualified models, which will help reduce their home energy usage,” said public utilities board President Lee A. Solomon. “This program helps residents save money and protect the environment.”
Customers purchasing select Energy Star clothes washers may be eligible for a $35 rebate. Select Energy Star dishwashers may net rebates of $25 or $50, while select Energy Star refrigerators may yield a $75 or $100 rebate.
The program will run from April 1-30, or while funding lasts. Program termination will be posted at www.NJCleanEnergy.com.
Rebates will be available through a mail in rebate or an instant rebate from the retailer. For a complete list of retailers offering an instant rebate, visit New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program’s website at www.NJCleanEnergy.com or call 1-866-NJ SMART.
In addition to the federally funded appliance rebates, New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program offers rebates for clothes washers, dehumidifiers and room air conditioners to eligible customers. Visit www.NJCleanEnergy.com or call 866-NJ SMART for eligibility requirements.
Additionally, a $50 rebate is offered to New Jersey residents who recycle their old, working refrigerators or freezers through New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program. Customers taking advantage of the ARRA incentives on new refrigerators may also take advantage of this program.
