Firelands Electric Co-op is offering rebates to cooperative members who replace their existing refrigerator, stand-alone freezer, clothes washer, or dishwasher with a new ENERGY STAR®-listed appliance. A rebate is also available for members who purchase a qualifying new ENERGY STAR-certified dehumidifier. This rebate is only available to members of the cooperative. Members must purchase the new ENERGY STAR-certified appliance between July 1, 2018 and June 15, 2019, and the existing appliance must be removed/recycled (except for dehumidifier).
- $100* REFRIGERATOR & FREEZER REBATE
ENERGY STAR-certified refrigerators and stand-alone freezers (10-30 cubic feet) can qualify for a $100 rebate from Firelands Electric Cooperative, as long as the old appliance is disposed of and the new appliance is installed at a location served by the cooperative.
- $50* DISHWASHER & CLOTHES WASHER REBATE
ENERGY STAR-certified dishwashers and clothes washers can qualify for a $50 rebate from Firelands Electric Cooperative, as long as the old appliance is disposed of and the new appliance is installed at a location served by the cooperative.
- $25* DEHUMIDIFIER REBATE
ENERGY STAR-certified dehumidifiers with a minimum capacity of 70 pints/day can qualify for a $25 rebate from Firelands Electric Cooperative, as long as the new appliance is installed at a location served by the cooperative. (Proof of removal NOT required for dehumidifiers only.)
SPECIFIC REQUIREMENTS: Member is required to provide documentation, such as a purchase receipt, showing that the new appliance was installed in a home or facility served by the cooperative. Member must also include proof of ENERGY STAR-listing, such as a copy of the yellow Energy Guide label or owner’s manual. (MUST include ENERGY STAR logo or statement of ENERGY STAR-certification). Documentation showing that the old appliance was removed/recycled is also required to be eligible for all rebates, except for dehumidifiers.
All rebates are issued in the form of a credit to the member's electric account. Rebates may not exceed the purchase price and items must have been purchased in the current program year. If you pay less for your appliance than the rebate amount, you will receive the amount you paid. A maximum of five appliance rebates, totaling $325, may be paid per member service location during the current program year of July 1, 2018 through June 15, 2019. Note: New construction and used appliances do not qualify.
*Firelands’ appliance rebate budget on refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers, clothes washers, and dehumidifiers is limited. Offer expires when funds are depleted on a first come, first served basis, or when the program is discontinued. New construction and used appliances do not qualify.
