Energy Star appliance rebates run out

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  There's no more money to give out in Energy Star appliance rebates.  In February, Georgia put $9.3 Million in the program to encourage you to buy energy efficient appliances.

The rebates were only $25 to $199, but the program was popular. Though the program is over Lowe's tells us they're offering a 10% rebate to customers who buy Energy Star appliances.

"Energy bills, like your water bill or your electric bill, it's just a way of saving money and they're efficient," said Lowe's Store Manager Mike Daniel. "They're run much cleaner, much better on much less, like washing machines. They run on 30% less water than the old standards and they do a better job, so it's a better product and the savings as well, so a lot of good benefits to having energy star."

The most popular item during the rebate program was clothes washers.
