To encourage replacement of high energy consumption refrigerators, freezers, clothes washers and dishwashers with more efficient models, La Plata Electric Association (LPEA) is now offering rebates to members who purchase new Energy Star® appliances.
The rebates are being made possible by Tri-State Generation and Transmission, from which LPEA purchases its electricity. Customers within LPEA’s service district have 180 days from date of purchase to apply for the rebate. To verify that a specific model qualifies, visit www.energystar.gov and review the complete list.
Following purchase, customers must submit an original proof-of-purchase along with the completed rebate form to the LPEA office in either Durango or Pagosa Springs. The rebates will be credited to LPEA customers’ electric bills within the following billing cycle.
