ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Georgia has given away millions of dollars in energy saving rebates; they have less than $50,000 left.
The program will likely end this week when the money runs out.
In Addition to the rebates, some stores had their own deals on energy saving appliances, but will sales slack of when the rebate funds are gone?
We checked with Lowe's Sunday, they're offering ten percent savings on top of the rebates. Appliance specialist Rob Smith says even without the rebate the energy savings and other incentives are worth it.
"There are still tax rebates you can receive when you apply for your taxes you can write off energy star appliances and other products," said Rod Smith, Lowe's Appliance Specialist.
To date, 86,000 rebates have been approved totaling more than $7.1 million.
Funds are distributed through Visa pre-paid cards; the Georgia Environmental Finance Authority says once the money is gone waiting list applications will be taken.
