Kentucky Rebates Let Residents Go Green and Save Green

If you’ve been looking for a reason to retire that aging avocado green fridge, here’s your best chance. On April 22, the state of Kentucky will begin giving away up to $4 million in rebates to people who replace old home appliances with new U.S. certified Energy Star appliances bought in Kentucky. These rebates range from $40 for single-room air conditioners to $400 for air-source or geothermal heat pumps and solar or electric water heaters. The new rebate plan, which is funded by the federal government’s economic stimulus program, covers 16 different appliances. Funds have been allocated to each state based on population, and the officials in each state determine which appliances are eligible for rebate. For residents of Kentucky, the rebates will continue until claims reach $4 million. Indiana launched a similar rebate program on February 1, and $6.1 million in rebates are available for residents, but only apply to heating, air-conditioning and ventilating equipment. “We opted to have a wide selection (of appliances),” said Virginia Phifer, manager of the Kentucky program, so that residents “would have more choices and we would spread the money more evenly.” Local appliance sellers are bracing for an expected boost in sales on and after the 22nd. “We’re not going to give anybody that day off,” said Joe Dumstorf, president of Trend Companies, an appliance and remodeling business in Jeffersontown. Louisville residents hoping to cash in on the appliance rebate program may be pleased to know that they can recycle up to three large items for free if they bring them to the city’s Waste Reduction Center at 636 Meriwether Avenue. It is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
