CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) – If you have wanted an excuse to replace your old gas guzzling, water wasting, washing machine, now might be the chance.
Both North and South Carolina are part of rebate program that is offering federal stimulus dollars to people who switch to the more energy efficient Energy Star qualified appliances.
The programs are for washing machines, dishwashers and refrigerators. Each state is using some of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act money to support the consumer rebate programs.
For South Carolina, you will get a set rebate on your purchase. The state is offering $100 back if you buy a washing machine that is energy state qualified, and $50 for refrigerators and dishwashers. The South Carolina rebate program starts March 31st.
In North Carolina, the program is a little different. NC residents will get 15 percent off their total purchase as the register. North Carolina shoppers can start saving Earth Day weekend, April 22, 2010.
Like most stimulus programs, they run until the money runs out. South Carolina has $3.9 million dollars in its fund. North Carolina will share $8.9 million dollars with consumers who spend to save.
Some energy smart washing machines, for example, can save consumers $150 annually on electricity and water consumption.
