South Dakota Appliance Rebates

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

South Dakota residents have already claimed more than half of South Dakota’s energy-efficient appliance rebate money.

The stimulus-funded program encourages residents to replace old appliances with more efficient models.

As of this past week, rebate applications totaled more than $392,000 for around 3,500 appliances. Clothes washers, refrigerators and dishwashers have been the most popular replaced appliances.

Nearly $350,000 remains available.

The program ends when the funds run out.
