Are there any rebates for replacing appliances?

If an appliance, like a refrigerator, is 15 years old or older it may be time to replace it with an efficient Energy Star appliance. Some appliances that are Energy Star rated can save a up to 30% energy compared to non-Energy Star certified appliances. New Energy Star certified appliances may qualify for a rebate from New Ulm Public Utilities.

If the age and condition of an appliance is unknown, try looking for the model number on the appliance. Locating a model number is not difficult. It is generally located on a paper sticker or a metal plate attached to the appliance. If it cannot be located, try locating a user manual that may have been left by the past owner. A model number can help aid in finding the age of the appliance and its energy consumption.
