Cash for...........REFRIGERATORS!!

What do you think? First it was billions on new cars, now its $300million on appliances!

Beginning late this fall, the program authorizes rebates of $50 to $200 for purchases of high-efficiency household appliances. The money is part of the broader economic stimulus bill passed earlier this year. Program details will vary by state, and the Energy Dept. has set a deadline of Oct. 15 for states to file formal applications. The Energy Dept. expects the bulk of the $300 million to be awarded by the end of November. (Unlike the clunkers auto program, consumers won't have to trade in their old appliances.)

Re: Cash for...........REFRIGERATORS!!

As far as the program goes, I am more for it than the cash for clunkers. I think more people will see financial benefit out of it locally than the clunkers did. My issue with cash for clunkers was the sales of vehicles benefits less individuals. Yes the workers get more hours to produce the vehicles, but for the large part, LARGE corporations own everything about the auto industry.
For appliances, there are many more manufacturers, and little mom and pop stores can sell appliances. So the middle income business owners will see more business. Plus they sell more than just appliances so it will get people in the door to buy other stuff. Add onto it the maintenance businesses for the appliances and it helps people.

I still am not for it, but I am more for it than the cash for clunkers crap!

Old fridges are power hogs, most with older fridges are lower income. Getting them a new model is win for them and the environment. Sounds like a good program to me.

tr00f, but apparently you don't need to trade a fridge in to get the rebate

But the old ones still exist, and will still be used.

Re: Cash for...........REFRIGERATORS!!

oh most definitely. but I am merely saying that if this is all about the environment it should be reserved for those who have inefficient fridges, eventually that money would get used up.
