Anytime I see rebates being offered, I hear the “caching, caching” sound of money going back to my reader’s pockets. So, in the mail box today I received the following from the New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™Rebates and Promotions:
“Based on the success of the recent ENERGY STAR® appliance promotion in April, additional rebates will be offered once again. The new promotion will cover purchases made from July 1 through August 31 (or while funds last). New Jersey residents will be eligible for rebates ranging from $25 to $100 on the purchase of ENERGY STAR qualified dishwashers, clothes washers and refrigerators. The rebates are a result of the federal stimulus funding from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Save time and money! Many retailers will provide an instant rebate at the time you make your purchase (so no waiting for your rebate!). However, some retailers may require you to complete a mail-in rebate form.
Plus, a seasonal rebate for ENERGY STAR room air conditioner units was launched on May 14, 2010 and will end August 31, 2010. Don’t wait to take advantage of these hot savings!
Hurry! Additional Rebate Programs end August 31 or while funds last!
ENERGY STAR Dishwashers
There are two rebates available on ENERGY STAR dishwashers. Check the product list for qualifying models before you shop.
$25 rebate for dishwashers that use 5.8 gallons of water or less per cycle and use less than 324 kWh per year.
$50 rebate for dishwashers that use 5.0 gallons of water or less per cycle and use less than 307 kWh per year.
ENERGY STAR Clothes Washers
Our most popular rebate program, energy efficient clothes washers, helps you save both energy and water at home.
For purchases made from July 1 through August 31 – a $35 rebate is available for select ENERGY STAR qualified clothes washers with a modified energy factor (MEF) of 1.8 to 2.19 and water factor <=7.5.
There is also a year-round $50 rebate available for select ENERGY STAR units with a MEF of 2.2 or higher.
ENERGY STAR Refrigerators
There are two rebates available on ENERGY STAR refrigerators which are 7.75 cubic feet or greater in volume. Remember, check the product list for qualifying models before you shop.
- $75 rebate for refrigerators that are 20% better than the federal standard.
- $100 rebate for refrigerators that are 25% better than the federal standard.
- There is also a $50 rebate offered through New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program year-round to residents who recycle their old, working refrigerators or freezers. This includes free pick-up.

All rebates are subject to change at any time.” [Emphasis added.]
I know. The rebates aren’t high but every little bit helps. Just think of how much energy and water you will be saving especially since the utilities hike their rates big time in New Jersey.
Check your own state to see what rebates are being offered. I am sure NJ is not the only one with the rebates.
