Moving? It's time for new appliances.

California has been allocated $35.2 million in federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to participate in the State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP). The California Energy Commission will administer the SEEARP that will provide rebates to consumers for purchasing qualified home appliances during the rebate period.

The rebate program will:

• Save energy by replacing inefficient appliances with more efficient ones.
• Make rebates for efficient appliances available to residential consumers.
• Leverage the ARRA funds with existing rebate programs and partnerships.
• Keep administrative costs low while meeting the federal monitoring and evaluation requirements.
• Provide state and national rebate tracking and accountability.
• Use current ENERGY STAR® consumer education and outreach materials.

Two Important Details

The program begins on Earth Day, April 22, 2010, and continues at most through May 23, 2010, but rebates will only be available as long as the rebate funds last. R ebates are first-come, first-serve and will be processed as received until funds are depleted. When funds run out, no more rebates will be issued, so act now!

The rebates are available to all California residential consumers who 1) Purchase a new, qualified appliance model in-store at a California retail location during the rebate period (April 22, 2010 - May 23, 2010); 2) Recycle an old appliance of the same type through a Certified Appliance Recycler; and 3) Submit the required rebate application materials no more than 30 days after the date of purchase of the new model.
