Don’t miss out on this chance to save energy and money.
The original appliance rebate program, which took place in April of 2010, was responsible for putting nearly $12.5 million back into the pockets of Texas residents. This cash-for-clunkers-esque program offered rebates to residents who took the opportunity to upgrade their aging and/or energy-guzzling appliances like dishwashers, freezers, refrigerators, air-conditioners and more. Rebates ranged from $45 – $1,600 dollars (per appliance). The program was successful, but a strict set of steps had to be followed if you wanted to take advantage of the rebates.
