There’s still time for Kentuckians to apply for appliance rebates.
Kentucky first lady Jane Beshear said nearly $1.7 million in unclaimed funds remain in the state’s Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program.
During the program’s first phase, residents could reserve rebates. But nearly half of Kentuckians who reserved a rebate have not purchased an appliance, making those unclaimed funds available.
The state says the unclaimed funds will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Under the program, Kentucky residents who buy an eligible Energy Star replacement appliance from a Kentucky retailer may be eligible for a rebate.
