Buying An Appliance Stop Here First

03.20.12 | Sarah Harnisch

If you want to buy an energy efficient appliance-- and would like as much as 350 dollars off of it-- today's the day to get it done, if you live in New York. It's day 2 of the "Buy Green, Save Green" New York State High-Efficiency Rebate Program. Last year, all the cash for the grant was gone in 3 days. The goal is to get people to buy appliances like washers, dishwashers, dryers and refridgerators that are more energy efficient, to conserve energy. You can get 350-dollars off a high-efficiency fridge, or 250-dollars off a washer that meets the federal standard. These rebates are usually only done once a year. Applications for the program can be found at or by calling 1-877-nysmart.
