NV appliance rebate funds depleted
CARSON CITY – A $2.5 million pot of federal stimulus money to help Nevadans buy energy efficient appliances has been used up.
But the State Office of Energy says residents who may have missed out can still sign up in case others who reserved rebates don’t follow through with a purchase.
Nevada launched its program at 12:01 a.m. April 17. By Thursday morning, all available money was reserved.
The program, which provides rebates of $200 for refrigerators, $150 for freezers and washing machines and $100 for dishwashers, also was intended to boost retail sales.
The rebates in Nevada and other states are funded with $300 million from the American Recovery and Investment Act.
