Governor Paterson has announced the New York Great Appliance Swap Out
– a program that provides $16.8 million for New Yorkers to turn in their less efficient appliances for rebates on energy efficient appliances NOW
through Sunday, February 21. The program uses federal funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA)
January 25, 2010
, by way of stimulus funds, is offering rebates on ENERGY STAR appliances during the week of February 12 – 21, until the funds run out. There are 2 different rebates on offer.
Rebate Option 1: Single Appliance. Get $75-105 dollars for buying a freezer, clothes washer or refrigerator if you also recycle your old one. If you don’t recycle the old one, you get $50-75.
Rebate Option 2: Buy 3 ENERGY STAR appliances, such as a refrigerator, clothes washer and dishwasher. Get up to $555 in a cash rebate. If you don’t recycle, then the rebate drops to $500.
The recycling options seem to be either having an appliance company pick up the old equipment and provide you with an invoice, or getting a confirmation number from 311 that you scheduled a pick up for the equipment by the Department of Sanitation.
