Funds From The State Sponsored Energy Efficiency Program Still Available

A program that gives rebates to Virginia consumers who buy energy-saving products has spent only 30 percent of its $7.5 million allotment since it began in April.

Consumers have to get rid of older appliances in order to get a rebate from the Virginia Energy Efficiency Appliance Rebate program.

Amber Amato with the Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals and Energy says the slow response may be due to the rebate amounts the state is offering.

Virginia's rebates start at $35 for storage gas water heaters and include $60 for refrigerators and $75 for clothes washers.

Massachusetts offered $200 rebates for refrigerators and $175 for clothes washers. That state's program ran out of money several hours after it began.
I've checked several sights about this and can't find a rebate for electric OR gas dryers.
