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 program's funding is exhausted. Be sure to confirm that rebate funds are still available in your state before making purchasing decisions. This program closed as of March 9, 2011 and is no longer available.

The Texas residential energy efficiency rebate program provides incentives to homeowners who replace older, less efficient appliances with ENERGY STAR appliances. There were two rounds of funding under this rebate program. The second round of the rebate went from December 2010 to March 2011; the first round was completed in April 2010.

In order to be eligible, consumers must be purchasing the equipment for the home (businesses are not eligible). No reservations were required. The program was first-come, first-served. Residential consumers will mail-in their rebate forms along with receipts. Residential consumers were eligible for rebates for up to two different appliances. A $75 recycling bonus was available for residential consumers that recycle their old appliances according to program rules.
