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.

As of March 15, 2010, Washington's Residential Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebate Program is offering rebates for select Energy Star appliances installed in households in Washington. In June 2010, a second phase of the rebate program launched and expanded this program to additional technologies. This program is administered by the Washington Department of Commerce. These rebates are available for Energy Star refrigerators and clothes washers that replace an existing appliance. After purchasing the eligible Energy Star appliances, individuals must apply for the rebate using a form located online and must submit the application along with supporting documentation. The rebate program will be open from March 15, 2010 until December 31, 2011, or rebate funds run out.
