SUBMITTED NEWS RELEASE
Nevada Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced $2.5 million of economic recovery funding is headed to Nevada to give consumers rebates for buying Energy Star appliances.
Energy Star appliances consume less energy than other appliances, which has helped consumers save $19 billion on utility bills in 2008 alone.
“In these tough economic times, I’m pleased that we’ve found another way to make it easier for consumers to save money,” Reid said. “These rebates will reward Nevadans who want to become more energy efficient and help them reduce their utility bills.”
