CASPER – The Wyoming Appliance Rebate Program has allocated all rebate funding and is no longer accepting rebate applications.
As of Jan. 5, the program paid rebates to over 4,000 Wyoming residents, contributing to annual energy savings of about 60,000 therms and 300,000 kWh each year. Energy savings statistics are based on a U.S. Department of Energy/ American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) reporting spreadsheet tool.
The Wyoming Appliance Rebate program launched April 15, 2010 with $511,000 to help Wyoming residents replace older appliances with newer, energy efficient technology. The Wyoming Appliance Rebate Program was managed by the State Energy Office and funded by the federal 2009 ARRA.
The program is still processing final applications. All rebate applications are processed in order based on the postmark date. Wyoming residents who are waiting for a response from the program will either receive a rebate check or a letter notifying them of program funding status.
“We really appreciate all the residents who participated in the program by investing in energy efficiency, and all the retailers, contractors, and utilities that helped to support the program by supplying products and educating customers,” said Heather Tupper, Wyoming State Energy Office grants and contracts specialist.
Purchases submitted to the program for rebates included more than 2,400 washers, 1,300 dishwashers, 400 furnaces, and 100 water heaters.
