Due to fund depletion, the program closed to new applications on Friday, April 13, 2012. Purchases made after Thursday, April 12, 2012 will not qualify for a rebate.

Note: Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is providing a total of $300 million to U.S. states, U.S. territories and the District of Columbia to establish rebate programs for new energy-efficient appliances that replace existing appliances in homes. Each state and territory has designed its own program. Rebates will be available until the state or territory program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state or territory before making purchasing decisions.

Beginning on March 15, 2010, Arkansas's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Arkansas. This program is administered by the Arkansas Energy Office. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, clothes washers, gas condensing water heaters, gas storage water heaters, gas tankless water heaters, and electric heat pump water heaters. These appliances must replace an existing appliance. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals must apply for the rebate within 30 days. Equipment purchased online is not eligible to receive rebates. Information on the availability of funds can be obtained at the Arkansas Recovery web site by calling 1-800-558-2633.
