This program was funded by South Carolina’s share of federal stimulus funds being distributed to each state for appliance rebates. Rebates did not apply to online purchases or purchases made prior to March 31, 2010. For appliances purchased in a store, the rebate was applied instantly at the register. Installers of whole-house equipment such as water heaters and HVAC systems reserved rebates online and then provided customers with mail-in forms. Customers participating in this program were required to let retailers and installers recycle their old, inefficient appliances to ensure that they are taken off the power grid.
