Fla. Energy-Efficient Appliance Rebates Run Out
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Florida consumers trying to take advantage of rebates on energy-efficient appliances are out of luck.
The state's rebates for energy-efficient appliances have run out. The $17.5 million in funding was gone late Saturday night after a flood of consumers took advantage of it.
The "Cash for Appliances" program offered a 20 percent rebate off the price of new energy-efficient appliances, including washers, dryers, dishwashers and refrigerators. There were also $75 rebates for recycling appliances.
The program launched at 11 a.m. Friday and was to run through April 25 or when funds ran out.
