AUSTIN, Texas -- Advance reservations are not required for the latest energy-efficient appliance rebate program in Texas offering more than $18 million in federal stimulus funds.
The program that began Monday involves a traditional mail-in rebate system for residential customers.
The state comptroller's office, which is administering the program, says about $10 million in unclaimed rebate funds from April's first program are available, plus $8.5 million from unused public sector energy efficiency funds.
Problems arose during the first rebate program when the online reservation systems and phone lines were swamped.
Rebate-eligible appliances are air-source heat pumps, central air conditioners, clothes washers, dishwashers, freezers, refrigerators, room air conditioners and water heaters.
