Consumers must purchase an ENERGY STAR® appliance from a participating vendor and replace their existing appliance with the newly purchased model in order to qualify for the rebate.
Please see www.ar.state-rebate.com for participating vendors and to apply for a rebate.
The ENERGY STAR® appliance rebates will be subject to the following program rules:
What is an Energy Star® Appliance?
ENERGY STAR® appliances meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy. ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances use 10 to 50% less energy and water than standard appliances. All ENERGY STAR® products feature the signature blue ENERGY STAR® logo on the front of the product and on the product packaging.
Will the rebates be retroactive?
Rebates will not be retroactive. Only purchases made on or after March 15, 2010 will be eligible for rebates.
Why must I use a participating vendor?
Participating vendors or retailers have signed agreements with the Arkansas Energy Office stating that certain federal program requirements will be met. For example, participating vendors guarantee that appliances replaced through the program will be properly disposed of according to federal, state and local requirements.
Where do I find participating vendors?
Participating vendors can be found by visiting www.ar.state-rebate.com . If you are an interested vendor, please call the Energy Office at 1-501-682-1060.
Why are there rebates for some appliance and not for others?
Rebated products were chosen based on a variety of factors including the state’s climate zone, other rebate incentive programs, the energy and water savings per unit, existing ENERGY STAR® market share and cost effective program implementation.
Qualified models may be found at http://www.ar.state-rebate.com/ and www.energystar.gov/. Be mindful that gas storage water heaters that meet the 2009 ENERGY STAR® criteria (EF>=0.62) and solar water heaters do not qualify for the rebate.
ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved enough energy in 2008 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 29 million cars — all while saving $19 billion on their utility bills.
As an ENERGY STAR partner, the Arkansas Energy Office (AEO) promotes continuous energy performance. AEO and ENERGY STAR work together to bring you financial and technical assistance, tools, and information to help better the environment through energy efficient practices and products.
