Cash-for-clunker appliance funds go quickly

If you haven’t taken advantage of the rebate for energy-efficient appliances yet, you may be out of luck.

The manager of the rebate program, Brenda Buchan, says less than $3 million of $17.5 million in rebates remained up for grabs on Friday. She expected the rest to be gone by Saturday morning.

The “Cash for Appliances” program offers a 20 percent rebate off the price of new energy-efficient appliances, including washers, dryers, dishwashers and refrigerators. There are also $75 rebates for recycling appliances.

The program launched at 11 a.m. Friday and was to run through April 25 or whenever funds ran out.
