MGED is following the latest state guidelines, offering rebates on specific technologies for the highest level of energy savings per budget dollar. This means that some Energy-Star qualified appliances will drop off our listed rebates. However we still encourage buying these more-efficient appliances whenever you are shopping for a new refrigerator, washer or room air conditioner. Their lower energy-use will save you many dollars during their useful life.
