Wis. to get $5.4 million for Energy Star rebates
From a post on Tom Content’s blog on JSOnline:
The state of Wisconsin is slated to receive $5.4 million from the federal stimulus package to fund rebates for consumers to buy energy-efficient home appliances, the U.S. Department of Energy said Tuesday.
DOE announced it will make $300 million available nationwide from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act to help boost sales of energy-efficient appliances and help homes become more energy-efficient.
“Appliances consume a huge amount of our electricity, so there’s enormous potential to both save energy and save families money every month,” said Energy Secretary Steven Chu in a statement. “These rebates will help families make the transition to more efficient appliances, making purchases that will directly stimulate the economy and create jobs.”
