Cash for Appliances Utah announces all program funds have been committed

Salt Lake City, Utah – Cash for Appliances Utah has entered its final phase, announcing today that all program funds have been committed. Final rebate processing is now underway as the popular program begins winding down.What does this mean for Utah residents still hoping to receive cash-back rebates on ENERGY STAR® appliance purchases? The program is still accepting new applications, however those received from this point on will be placed in a waiting queue. There’s no guarantee that late-arriving applicants will obtain a rebate, but in the event that any applications currently being evaluated don’t qualify, those in the waiting queue will be processed in the order received. This process will continue until all funds are paid out.The success of Cash for Appliances Utah is easy to measure. By offering cash incentives that make it easy and affordable to upgrade to new Energy Star® appliances (including clothes washers, room air conditioners, natural gas furnaces and water heaters), the program has helped more than 13,000 Utahans reduce their energy costs.These efforts have stimulated the local economy by generating upwards of $30 million in retail sales. And by encouraging Utah residents to transition to more energy-efficient appliances, the program is leaving a positive lasting impact on the environment, helping to preserve precious natural resources for future generations.During this final phase of the Cash for Appliances program, processing times may exceed eight weeks and call center hold times will be significantly longer.For more details email cashforappliancesutah@peci.org or visit www.cashforappliancesutah.comCash for Appliances Utah is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy and administered by the Utah State Energy Program.
