Rebates

ENERGY STAR® Appliance Rebate Program

With documentation and proof of purchase of a qualified ENERGY STAR appliance Four County members are eligible for a $50 rebate.

ENERGY STAR® qualified products and practices help you save money and reduce greenhouse gas emissions by meeting energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. EPA and U.S. DOE. The ENERGY STAR® label also designates greater energy performance in homes and buildings.

Remember, when buying an appliance it has two price tags: what you pay to take it home and what you pay for the energy and water it uses. ENERGY STAR® qualified appliances incorporate advanced technologies that use 10-50% less energy and water than standard models.

Major appliances that are eligible for the rebates are:
  • Refrigerators
  • Dishwashers
  • Clothes washers
  • Freezers
  • Dryers
