Cash for Appliances off to a slow start

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The government's Cash for Appliances program appears to be off to a slow start.

It started February 12th, but at Knight's Appliances on Slappey Boulevard, few customers are taking advantage of it. The program provides rebates between $50.00 and $100.00 on most energy star appliances. At Knight's, they believe deeper discounts might have been a bigger draw.

"If you got $200, $300 on a refrigerator $100, $150 on a washing machine or a dish washer, that's going to cause people to stop and think okay, now's the time I need to go and buy something and it's just not enough money on the appliances to get it done, I don't think," said Chuck Knight, Knight's Appliances.

The program started out with more than eight million dollars. There's still 7.7-million available. The program will continue for the next 80 days or until the money runs out. For more information, you can log onto www.georgiarebate.com
