PEERS Model Being Adopted For Appliance Rebate Program

An article in the San Diego Union-Tribune last week discussed a proposed Federal “cash for appliances” program that’s using the PEERS model of piggybacking Federal rebates on top of existing state and utility rebates.

From the Article:

The Department of Energy has a lot of confidence that the states will implement it effectively,‘ DOE spokeswoman Jen Stutsman said. ‘The rebate programs will build off existing (state and utility rebate) programs and make use of appliances in a particular climate that yield the most energy savings.’
Stutsman said the department expects the state programs to allow ‘piggybacking.’ In other words, if you buy an energy-efficient refrigerator that qualifies for a $25 rebate from San Diego Gas & Electric Co., you would get that on top of the federal rebate.
