Hi all,

Just an FYI: using federal stimulus money, in April, for 10 days only,
Florida will give consumers a 20% rebate on the purchase of new appliances
which meet certain criteria; if you send an old appliance of the same type
to the dump, you can get an additional $75 as well.  here's a brief

Florida's ENERGY STAR appliance rebate program will focus on replacing
products in
the Florida home that provide the state with the most energy and water
savings and
that are not already covered by a state or large utility program. Products
for Florida's rebate program are only new appliances purchased in the State
of Florida
for personal use by the consumer. Florida will offer a 20 percent rebate off
retail price of a new qualified ENERGY STAR appliance. Rebates only apply to
purchase of the appliance and not to delivery or installation costs. Rebates
be available only for the following ENERGY STAR certified appliances and
gas tank-less water heaters, clothes washers, refrigerators, dishwashers,
room air-conditioners
and freezers. 

This program is available to all Florida residents through a mail-in
rebate application and will launch April 16, 2010, and conclude April 25,
2010. It
is timed to coincide with Florida's Earth Day Activities."

The web site giving all the details is at:


You must make the purchase during this 10-day period.

there is a limit of only one rebate, per appliance type, per address, and a
total limit of $1500 per address.

Also, the state only has so many dollars available for rebates, and if they
run out, you are not guaranteed to receive a rebate (although as I read it,
they don't seem to expect to run out).
