Rebate money available for those going green on appliances

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - There's still time to go green and get some green back from the government. Arizona has extended its appliance rebate program. There is $6.2 million dollars available to help buy a new appliance with one catch, that new one has to cool off the price you pay for electricity.

For more information, visit No reservations will be required with the new program. Starting on July 1, Arizonans will be able to check for available funds, then make a purchase of a qualified appliance, and then complete their application online to print and mail in for the rebate. The new appliances covered in this second round include Energy Star rated refrigerators, freezers, room air conditioners, and solar hot water heaters.
