ANAHEIM RESIDENTS CAN RECEIVE DOUBLE – OR EVEN TRIPLE – THE REBATES ON ENERGY STAR® APPLIANCES AND MEASURES
ANAHEIM, CA - (April 22, 2010) -

Anaheim Public Utilities has announced that residents can receive as much as triple the rebates for energy-efficiency improvements around their home, starting today.  The City has been offering double rebates since February 1 (which runs until June 30), for both Anaheim residents and businesses on a variety of ENERGY STAR® appliances and other qualified measures, like ENERGY STAR® windows. 


Starting today – Earth Day – thru May 23, the California Energy Commission (CEC) is offering a similar deal for residential customers through its Cash For Appliances program. Combined with Anaheim’s rebate program and the State’s Cash For Appliances program, Anaheim residents could receive triple rebates during that month.  For example, a new ENERGY STAR® refrigerator or dishwasher would typically earn the buyer a $50 rebate.  But during this limited time period, Anaheim residents can expect $100 back through the City’s rebate program and receive an additional $50 through the State’s Cash For Appliances program, for a complete rebate of $150.


“The rebates, part of Anaheim Public Utilities’ existing Home Incentives Program, were designed to encourage residents to make energy-saving updates to their homes with various monetary incentives and fee waivers,” said Marcie Edwards, General Manager.  “This temporary increase in the form of a rebate is intended to generate more interest in the program and improve energy efficiency citywide,” added Edwards. 


Anaheim’s double rebates applies to more than a dozen appliances; the full list is available at anaheim.net/utilities, or call (714) 939-9020.  The Cash For Appliances program applies only to specific eligible products: refrigerators, washer,  and room air conditioning units.  For more details on Cash For Appliances rebate, please visit cash4appliances.org.
