ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia consumers have claimed all of the state's
Energy Star appliance rebates.
This week they snapped up the last of the $9.3 million in
federal money available to state residents who bought Energy Star
appliances since the Georgia Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate
Program began in February.
Rebates ranged in value from $25 for Energy Star freezers to
$199 for certain types of water heaters, boilers and air source
heat pumps. Officials say the most popular purchases included
clothes washers, dishwashers and refrigerators.
Phil Foil, executive director of the Georgia Environmental
Finance Authority, is calling the program a success.
