Appliances

Refrigerators and other large electric appliances can be energy hogs. We're here to help.

Check our list of rebates (below) when you're ready to replace old kitchen and laundry appliances. And remember to look for the Energy Star label when you go shopping.

Tax advantages

Congress created tax credits and deductions available to homeowners and businesses that purchase energy-efficiency appliances, renewable energy equipment and electric vehicles. These incentives were modified in December, 2014. More information can be found on the Tax Incentive Assistance Project web site.
