Low income home owners in Oregon who want to take advantage of an appliance rebate program better act fast as funds for the program could be gone by summer. Ann Grim with the Oregon Department of Energy says the program is a one time funding source. "This is stimulus money. And it's an Energy Star Rebate Program. So it's a different program and it’s a limited time. We have $3.6 million for energy efficient appliances. The Oregonians that are eligible are low-income homeowners." Grim says there's been a residential tax credit program that's been managed by the Department of Energy for a long time, but this program is about to end. To be eligible, you must earn less than 60% of the States' medium income level and purchase an Energy Star appliance. You could get up to 70% of the purchase price rebated back to you.
