Placeholder Image
ATLANTA — Starting Feb. 12, the state energy efficient appliance rebate program will provide Georgia residents with rebates ranging from $25-$199 on Energy Star rated appliances. Energy Star appliances eligible for the program include clothes washers, dishwashers, air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, water heaters, refrigerators and freezers. The total amount available for rebates is $8.6 million.
“The opportunity to receive rebates on the purchase of energy efficient appliances starts Feb. 12,” said GEFA Executive Director Phil Foil. “Georgians can participate in the rebate program by applying at immediately following their appliance purchase.”
Georgia residents with a valid residential address who buy qualified appliances from a Georgia retailer will be eligible to receive the rebate for that appliance. Rebates are limited to one rebate per appliance type per household. For example, a consumer who buys two of the same appliance would qualify for only one rebate, but a consumer who purchases two different appliances would qualify for two separate rebates. Separate rebate applications must be completed for each appliance purchased. The maximum rebate limit per household is $1,200.  
When the program launches on Feb. 12, consumers and retailers will be able to confirm the availability of remaining funds by checking or by calling 1 (866) 296-1633.  The Web site and the phone number will provide estimates on the funds remaining in the program and the approximate number of days until funding is depleted. The rebates will be awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis until the funding is depleted.
Following the appliance purchase, customers will be responsible for immediately applying for the rebate at or by calling toll-free 1-866-296-1633.
