ENERGY STAR® Appliance Rebates

Since its inception in 1992, ENERGY STAR® has become a recognized symbol that helps consumers identify energy-efficient products that offer savings on energy bills without sacrificing performance.

Look for the ENERGY STAR Label and See What You Can Save!

Visit a store near you to look for new household products that have earned the ENERGY STAR label. These products have met strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Then, you can apply for the following rebates on ENERGY STAR qualified appliances:*

$150 Rebate for Refrigerators

An ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator can reduce your annual utility costs by up to $200.**

Earn a rebate of up to $100 when you purchase an ENERGY STAR refrigerator – or get a $150 rebate when you purchase a super efficient model that is 20% or more efficient than the standard ENERGY STAR model.

$100 Rebate for Washers

The average American household washes almost 300 loads of laundry each year. An ENERGY STAR qualified washer can reduce related energy costs by up to a third and water costs by up to half.**

Earn a rebate of up to $50 when you purchase an ENERGY STAR clothes washer with a Modify Energy Factor (MEF) of 2.2 and above and a Water Factor (WF) less than or equal to 4.5. Or receive a $100 rebate when you purchase a most efficient model that is MEF of 2.4 and above and a WF less than or equal to 4.0.

$75 Rebate for Freezers

An ENERGY STAR qualified freezer uses 10 percent less energy than non-qualified models.**

$25 Rebate for Room Air Contidioners

ENERGY STAR qualified room air conditioners use at least 10 percent less energy than conventional models.**

$25 Rebate for Dehumidifiers

The energy saved throughout the lifespan of an ENERGY STAR qualified dehumidifier could power a refrigerator for six months — potentially saving you $220.**

And, if you recycle your old, working refrigerator, freezer or air conditioner, you may be eligible for another rebate. Potomac Edison has contracted JACO Environmental to provide appliance recycling services to their residential customers. JACO will perform all pick up and recycling activities for this program.
