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 May 24, 2010, Montana's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Montana. The first rebate offering closed in September 2010, but the program re-opened in December 2010 for low-income households specifically. Currently, rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerator replacements for low-income households. These rebates should be used to replace an existing appliance. Applicants will have to provide information on how and where the existing appliance will be recycled. Rebates will be available until funds are exhausted. This program is administered by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality.

To receive the rebate, an individual must purchase the appliance at a store in Montana. Information on the availability of funds will be available online and can also be obtained by calling 406-841-5275. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals must complete the online rebate application form and submit supporting documentation. More information is available on the program web site.
