State Appliance Rebates are Showing Up. Just Hold Your Horses...

The "Cash-for-Appliance Clunkers" is making its debut, little by little. The reason is that the program is not administered by the federal government, but by state governments, who had to submit their plans to the federal Department of Energy for approval. But, one by one, those plans are being approved and implemented. The Consumer Reports blog has some good q and a information about what is covered, and what isn't. Furthermore, there is a link to a federal site that answers more questions (such as types of appliances covered), which in turn has another link to a state-by-state rundown of how much a state will receive, the approximate date of rollout, and numbers to call for more information.

For Ohioans, the expected rollout date is February 2010, and no phone number is listed yet. But there is a state Department of Development website with more information.
