If you’re thinking about upgrading to newer and more energy-efficient appliances, don’t miss out on great savings. Investigate what your state and local government will pay you! Also, many utility companies offer financial incentives for homeowners to go green.

My parents recently purchased a new energy-efficient Electrolux washer and dryer. They wound up getting a $100 rebate check!

See if your state offers rebates by visiting the DSIRE website (Database of State Incentives for Renewable Energy).

In North Carolina where I live, DSIRE lists 67 ways to save money with tax incentives, grants and rebate programs, including a $50 rebate for purchasing Energy Star appliances. Amounts can vary by each state, and some rebate programs  launch on Earth Day (April 22).

The Energy Star Appliance Rebate program was created to help stimulate the economy and conserve energy. If you have to spend on appliances, it only makes sense to get some money back!
