Earth Day 2010: Latest Appliance Rebate Program Incentives

Four months have passed since the U.S. began its Appliance Rebate Program, but now a number of newer, larger incentives will start tomorrow to coincide with Earth Day 2010. So we can expect new appliance sales to peak on Thursday.

The first state to start the cash for appliances program was Delaware, 35 states have now done their part as well. Tomorrow we will see new incentives from nine other states – including Washington D.C. This will be the most state incentive launches in one day, which shows that they are taking Earth Day 2010 seriously.

The state with the biggest budget is California with $35.3 million, followed by Texas with $23.3 million. New York has an incentive budget of $18.7 million — still better than most states offered in the past. There is two ways that you can look at this, you are purchasing a new appliance to do your bit for the planet, as well as saving a few bucks as well, it is win win.

We are not certain what sort of incentives each state is offering, but if we take a look at the recent Massachusetts program, they were offering rebates from $50 to $250 on washers, refrigerators, freezers and much more, this is according to KTVU.

These Earth Day deals not only apply to appliances, but other electrical goods as well, which you can read more about in our recent post.
