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.

West Virginia's State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP) began June 17, 2010. Residents must replace existing, less-efficient appliances to be eligible and must buy the approved appliances from a participating retailer (online purchases do NOT qualify). Appliances replaced before the program start date are not eligible. The rebate comes in the form of a prepaid Visa card. West Virginia's program includes dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and clothes washers (freezer and room air conditioner rebates are no longer available).
