Cash In on Appliance Savings
Don’t miss out on your chance to cash in on appliance savings. The program is expected to begin in California in early spring. It’s worth keeping an eye on the California Energy Commission’s website for up to the minute announcement.
If you are thinking about upgrading appliances, you might want to wait until the Cash for Clunkers for Appliances money is released. It’s important not to wait for too long though because once the $35.2 million allotment is gone, it’s over.
Three residential appliance categories will be eligible to receive rebates: clothes washers (proposed rebate $100), refrigerators (proposed rebate $75), and room air conditioners (proposed rebate $50). This can be a great time to save even more than is available with sale prices.
Many California utilities, as well as appliance manufacturers offer additional rebates or incentives. The Flex Your Power website lists 155 incentives for the “residential sector” just in the 93561 zip code.
More Savings on the Horizon
In addition to the appliance incentives, President Obama has also proposed a “Cash for Caulkers” program. This would provide up to $12,000 per homeowner. You can read about the proposal here. For the tongue-in-cheek approach as only Jon Stewart can deliver it, you can check out the Daily Show’s Most Immature Montage Ever.
Keep watching to take advantage of the chance to save some money.
