4-day appliance rebate program kicks off in NC

April 22, 2010 3:43:37 PM PDT
North Carolina's four-day program to give a 15 percent price break on energy-efficient kitchen and laundry appliances is off to a fast start.

The State Energy Office said more than $2 million in rebates had been obligated Thursday afternoon for Energy Star-qualified refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and clothes washers. The program continues through Sunday or when the rebate total reaches about $8 million.

To receive a rebate, North Carolina residents must replace an existing appliance and buy the new appliance at one of more than 400 qualified retail outlets. There's a limit of one rebate per customer per product category.

The rebate money came from the federal stimulus package.
