Raia: $3.5 Million in Rebates Available to Households

Beginning March 19 rebates will be available to those who purchased a high-efficiency ENERGY STAR refrigerator or washing machine. Rebates will be awarded on a first come, first-serve basis.

Assemblyman Encourages Homeowners To Take Advantage of Program

Assemblyman Andrew Raia (R,I,C – East Northport) is encouraging constituents to apply for a rebate toward high-efficiency refrigerators and washing machines. The rebates are available through Governor Cuomo’s newly announced Buy Green, Save Green NYS High-Efficiency Rebate program.

Beginning Monday, March 19, Long Islanders can apply for a rebate toward their ENERGY STAR® high-efficiency washing machines and refrigerators. $3.5 million in federal funds will be awarded on a first come, first-serve basis. Rebates of $350 will be available toward qualifying refrigerators, and $250 toward qualifying washing machines. The funding is being provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s State Energy Program.

“I encourage those who have been saving to purchase new home appliances to jump at this opportunity,” said Raia. “Not only will you be saving by purchasing a high efficiency appliance and receiving a rebate, you will also be investing in a refrigerator or washing machine that will save you on your monthly energy bill.”

Those interested in applying for the rebate can visit www.NYSApplianceRebates.com. The site will include a list of high efficiency refrigerators and washing machines that qualify for rebates. Purchases made before March 19 are excluded from this program.

For any legislative questions or concerns, please call the assemblyman’s district office at 631-261-4151, or email at raiaa@assembly.state.ny.us.
