Cash for Appliances successor to Cash for Clunkers Trade Up program

Cash for Appliances appears to be the next federal government plan to spend millions of taxpayers dollars on trade-ins. The government wants people to trade up for newer, more energy efficient appliances. Pennsylvania should receive about $12 million from Washington for appliance rebates. The state has until Oct. 15 to file a plan with the U.S. Dept. of Energy detailing on how it intends to use this money.

Pennsylvania has taken steps to encourage purchasing energy efficient appliances and home improvements. In 2009 the state had a $17 million expansion to a state program called KeystoneHELP. This program offers low interest loans and rebates to pay for everything from energy efficient doors to installation of eco friendly heating and cooling systems.
