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. The HVAC portion of this program has reopened temporarily for customers that purchased HVAC or geothermal systems during the program time period (August 30, 2010 - September 14, 2010) but were not reimbursed. Florida HB 15A was passed on November 16, 2010, to approve funding for systems installed before November 30, 2010. Applications are due November 30, 2010, and must show that the system was purchased or contracted for purchase between August 30 and September 14.

This record is for information only, the Florida State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program closed on April 19, 2010. Consumers can join a waiting list in the event that some of the program funding becomes available.

As of April 16, 2010, Florida's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Florida. This program is administered by the Florida Energy and Climate Commission. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers, dishwashers, room air conditioners and gas tankless water heaters. The rebate is being offered for 20% of the cost of the appliance, and households can get one rebate for each type of appliance per household. An additional $75 per appliance is available for recycling the old appliance. A maximum of $1,500 is available in rebates and recycling bonuses for a single residence. The rebate will be issued in the form of a prepaid credit card.

After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals can request a priority number to reserve a rebate. The online rebate priority number system will be open beginning at 11 am on April 16, 2010. Residents that receive a priority number will have their rebate application processed prior to other rebate applications without a priority number. Following the purchase of eligible appliances, individuals must apply for the rebate using a form located online and must submit the application along with supporting documentation by May 10, 2010. The rebate program will be open from April 16, 2010 until April 25, 2010.
