ATLANTA—Georgia residents again have the opportunity to apply for rebates ranging from $25 to $199 on ENERGY STAR-rated appliances.
Approximately $800,000 in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds remain available for rebates on ENERGY STAR appliances such as clothes washers, dishwashers, air conditioners, heat pumps, furnaces, water heaters, refrigerators and freezers. Purchases made prior to Feb. 12, 2010, are not eligible. During the first phase of the program, 104,971 rebates were approved totaling more than $8.7 million. 
“We are excited to provide Georgians who may not have been able to participate in the program earlier this year a second opportunity to receive rebates on the purchase of energy-efficient appliances,” said GEFA Executive Director Kevin Clark. “Georgians can participate in the rebate program by applying at immediately following their appliance purchase.”
Georgia residents with a valid residential address who purchase a qualified ENERGY STAR appliance from a Georgia retailer will be eligible to receive the assigned rebate for that appliance. Rebates are limited to one rebate per appliance type per household. For example, a consumer who purchases two of the same appliance would qualify for only one rebate, but a consumer who purchases two different appliances would qualify for two separate rebates. Separate rebate applications must be completed for each appliance purchased. The maximum rebate limit per household is $1,200.
Consumers will be able to confirm the availability of remaining funds by checking or by calling toll-free 1-866-296-1633.
The website and the phone number will provide a current estimate on the program’s remaining funds and the approximate days until the funding is depleted. The rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Waitlist applications will be accepted once the funds are depleted in the event additional funds become available due to invalid applications or applications that are not submitted within the required 30 days.
Following the appliance purchase, customers will be responsible for immediately applying for the rebate at or by calling toll-free 1-866-296-1633. When the application process is complete, a rebate form will be provided through the Web site or via U.S. mail if the toll-free number is used to apply. The rebate form and a copy of the sales receipt will then be mailed by the customer to the address on the rebate form. The sales receipt must verify that a qualifying ENERGY STAR appliance was purchased. Qualified appliances must be purchased from a retailer within the state of Georgia. Online and out-of-state purchases do not qualify.
Once the rebate claim is physically received and the receipt is verified, the customer’s rebate will be approved and payment will be mailed. Rebates will be issued in the form of a Visa® prepaid c0ard preloaded with the rebate amount within two to three weeks from mailing the required forms and receipts.

Participants are required to recycle refrigerators and freezers and are strongly encouraged to recycle all other appliances. Recycling arrangements can be coordinated with the retailer or by visiting
