Rebates Now Available

From today's Commercial Appeal...

Tennesseans who bought energy-efficient appliances can apply for rebates starting today
By Richard Locker

NASHVILLE -- Tennesseans are eligible for rebates of as much as $250 for qualifying energy-efficient heating and cooling systems installed starting April 22, the Department of Economic and Community Development announced Monday.

Eligible items include central air conditioners, gas furnaces, air source heat pumps and room air conditioners with the "Energy Star" designation.

A rebate of $250 is available for air source heat pumps and central air conditioners, $150 for gas furnaces, and $40 for room air conditioners.

Rebates are available on a first-come basis, as determined by postmarks on mailed applications, until $5.9 million in federal economic stimulus money awarded to Tennessee runs out.

The rebate program opens at noon today, when applications become available, either online at e-rebates.org/teearp or by calling toll-free (877) 741-4304.

Purchases made on or after April 22 and installed at a Tennessee address are eligible.

"Assisting Tennesseans in purchasing Energy Star heating and cooling units will help people reduce their energy usage and lower their utility bills while also having a positive impact on our environment," said Economic Development Commissioner Matt Kisber.

Consumers who receive rebates under the state's program may be eligible for further financial assistance through the Tennessee Valley Authority's residential efficiency programs.

Details for that program are at energyright.com.
