[ARCHIVED] Virginia Appliance Rebate Program Begins April 28th

Beginning Wednesday, April 28th at 11 AM, Virginia’s Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program will offer Virginians up to $300 on select ENERGY STAR qualified appliances. The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy (DMME) will be administering the program, which is intended to increase residential energy conservation in Virginia through the use of more efficient appliances. The following ENERGY STAR rated appliances are eligible for the corresponding rebate amounts:

• Heat Pump - $300
• Gas Furnace - $250
• Tankless Gas Water Heater - $225
• Clothes Washer - $75
• Refrigerator - $60
• Storage Gas Water Heater - $35

To be eligible for an appliance rebate, the applicant must be a Virginia resident; the appliance must be replacing an existing appliance and must be purchased at a retail location in Virginia. The appliance rebates are limited to one rebate per household and each rebate must be reserved online prior to the appliance purchase.

The Appliance Rebate Program is the third energy efficiency rebate program to be administered by the DMME using American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding. “As many Danville Utilities customers know, the first two Virginia rebate programs were extremely popular,” said Nate Lewis, Interim Key Accounts Manager for Danville Utilities. “It is very important for Danville Utilities customers who may have not signed up in time for the last two rebate programs to mark their calendars for the morning of April 28th and go online to reserve their rebate funding as soon as possible, especially if you are in the market for a new ENERGY STAR appliance that is on the list.”

The most recent energy efficiency rebate program was launched by the DMME in late March. $6.5 million in rebate funding was reserved in less than 24 hours. Virginia’s allocation of rebate funding for the upcoming Appliance Rebate Program is $7.45 million.
