In the never ending search for something for your trouble - I came across this today when we purchased our second window AC unit. Of COURSE - SC exhausted it's 1.95 million energy budget within hours - get that HOURS of being on line - so there's nothing for me from the state for buying energy efficient stuff, and there's nothing from our electric co-op because they 'inhale-violently' but reminded me to give them my address when I move so that I could get my stock share in the future should there ever be any - from paying my $524.00 a month electric bill..... gosh what's that LAssie? .45 cents per annum? So anyway - check it out - You may have money waiting http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=home.index I've found NOTHING in the way of "here ya go Star" for doing the right thing.....the lady in Walmart told us to ask for a Solar powered Lenox heat pump so we could get the electric company to buy back our extra electricity. I'm thinking - THEY have no clue about any of that at this point. They did try to sell me a rental surger for $25 a year and some other meter surger for $5.00 a month. Nice - huh? If you are aware of anything for a rebate or refund or something for putting in any heatpump/ac let me know.
