Assemblyman John Ceretto today announced that the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority's website is now live at
www.NYSApplianceRebates.com. The site lists high-efficiency refrigerators and washing machines eligible for rebates under the new $3 million rebate program. It also contains a link to the program's application.
"This program is a terrific opportunity for Niagara County residents to update their washing machine and refrigerator to more energy- and cost-efficient appliances. I am encouraging Western New Yorkers to go online and apply for the program today so they do not miss out on receiving this important rebate."
Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis for completed applications, which are available on the website or by calling 1-877- NY-SMART (877-697-6278).
Purchases made before Sept. 2, 2011, are not eligible for rebates. The program will continue until funding runs out.
