Appliance rebates are back but running out quickly

By Ben Roberts - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The state released another $800,000 in federal stimulus money for an energy-efficient appliance rebate program a couple of weeks ago, but the money is going fast. In the initial phase, Georgians got rebates totaling $8.7 million for buying Energy Star-rated appliances.

Retailers are glad the program returned in time for Christmas. Albany Sears General Manager George Galligan said, "Absolutely, we are. Customers come in through our doors asking the associates where the Energy Star units are, and we want to make sure we can service those customers."

The rebates range from $25 to $199. You can apply online at www.georgiarebate.com after your purchase. All the money for this round of rebates has been reserved but not handed out. Officials say you should still apply because you might qualify.
