NM continues rebates for certain appliances

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Bill Richardson's administration says New Mexicans can still receive a $200 rebate for buying certain energy-efficient appliances.

The state has $40,000 available to make rebates to New Mexico residents who bought Energy Star qualified clothes washers and refrigerators from a retailer in the state between April 22 and Nov. 15. The money came from administrative savings in the program.

Rebates are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

The state also continues to offer rebates for buying an energy-efficient natural gas furnace.

More information is available from the Energy Minerals and Natural Resources Department.
