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 and the District of Columbia has chosen to supplement federal funds with additional funding from the Sustainable Energy Trust Fund (SETF). 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.
The District of Columbia's energy efficient appliance rebate program and residential efficiency rebate program opened on October 25, 2010. The program will continue to accept applications until available funding is exhausted. Purchases made prior to the opening date of the program are not eligible for a rebate.
State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program This program offers rebates ranging from $100 - $600 for Energy Star listed clothes washers, refrigerators, dishwashers, and electric heat pump hot water heaters. Most appliances have standard rebate levels, but higher rebates are available for dishwashers that meet more stringent energy and water use requirements. Funds for electric appliance rebates are provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) state energy efficient appliance rebate program (SEEARP).
Residential Efficiency Rebate Program Rebates under this program range from $200 - $600 for qualifying gas storage water heaters, residential gas boilers, and residential gas furnaces. All Energy Star listed appliances of these types qualify for an incentive. Funding for gas appliance rebates comes from the District of Columbia Sustainable Energy Trust Fund (SETF).
