Released by the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts:
AUSTIN, TX (KLTV) – To accommodate all Texas families and ensure residents have an opportunity to participate in the Texas Trade Up Appliance Rebate Program, the date to reserve rebates for select ENERGY STAR® appliances has been changed from April 5 to Wednesday, April 7, beginning at 7 a.m. CT. The Comptroller's office made this move in response to inquiries from families who plan to celebrate and travel during the religious holidays.
Beginning April 7 at 7 a.m., consumers can visit the online reservation system at www.TexasPowerfulSmart.org or call (877) 780-3039 to reserve rebates. Texans can use the rebates to buy energy efficient appliances in eight different appliance categories and replace the same type of old, functional appliance. The purchase period start date for all appliances remains April 16, 2010.
