NJ Energy Star Appliance Rebates Ending May 31, 2011

Energy Star Appliances

In cooperation with the federal government, who has allocated federal stimulus funds through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to the states, New Jersey has instituted a program offering mail-in and instant rebates for home owners purchasing new kitchen and laundry appliances.

Upon passing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the federal government allocated federal funding to be used as an incentive to drive sales or energy star appliances. It was decided that these funds would be allocated to the states who would handle the specific manner in which these programs would function. In our home state of New Jersey, the New Jersey Clean Energy Program is has implemented a rebate program that encourages the purchase of energy efficient clothes washers, dishwashers, and refrigerators.

Rebates are handled in a number of manners. For instance, larger appliances stores like Karl’s Appliance have partnered with the NJCEP to make most of the rebates applied instantly reducing the price of the energy star rated appliance at the cash register. Other smaller retailers, offer the same rebate amounts however they necessitate that the customer mail-in a form and wait for a check to be mailed to their home.

Unfortunately, the program can be difficult to decipher. Even within particular categories of appliances there are different rebate amounts that models can qualify. To further confuse the issue, some clothes washing machines qualify for instant rebates while others qualify for mail in rebates – even at stores that normally apply these instantly.

Clothes washer rebates are based on the energy consumption and water usage. If a washing machine is energy star rated and qualifies for a rebate, the amount will be either $35 instant or $50 mail in at Karl’s. Many machines qualify including front load washers and top load washers.

Dishwashers also qualify for rebates based on energy consumption as well as water usage. Tier 1 qualifying models get a $25 instant rebate and more efficient models qualify for a $50 instant rebate.

Refrigeration units have two levels similar to dishwashers. Models either qualify for a $75 or $100 instant rebate based on energy consumption.

The state has decided to put an end to all instant Energy Star rebates starting May 31, 2011. This includes all rebates related to refrigerators and dishwashers. The $50 mail in rebate on washers that meet the Tier III Energy Star will continue through the end of the year.
