just an FYI here: for the next 10 days, the state is offering a 20% rebate, plus an additional $75 if you document your old appliance has been destroyed, for new energy star appliances of a certain type: dishwashers, washers, tankless hot water heaters, room air conditioners, freezers (maybe some others, but no dryers or stoves). besides documenting it all with a receipt showing a purchase made on or after today, you have to then go to a web site, get the application, and get a priority number assigned to you. the appliance merchant should be willing to help you with all this. hth, Chip Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
