One third of the rebates will be going towards Energy Star hot water heaters, appliances and furnaces. The majority of the money was contributed from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
Rebates for kitchen appliances can be anywhere from $50 to $100. Hot water heaters and furnaces have a rebate between $200 and $500. The rebates will be on a first-come first-serve basis online. GEO rebates will not be retroactive. Therefore, products purchased and installed before the GEO launches won’t be eligible for rebates.
Rebates for renewable energy measures, like solar electric systems and solar hot water, will need a home energy audit before applying.
Starting on April 19, 2010, online visitors will be directed to the Recharge Colorado website. This website will allow people to reserve rebates.
For those who need more information, Todd Hartman may be contacted by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (303-866-2262).
