Get up to $3,500 with energy-saving rebate

Customers of the Kansas City Board of Public Utilities (BPU) are now eligible to receive up to $3,500 in rebates for replacing older, inefficient refrigerators with an Energy Star® qualified appliance that uses less electricity.

The BPU Refrigerator Replacement Rebate program is available to residential and commercial customers. The residential rebate has been increased to $1,000, and commercial customers can receive up to $3,500.

Refrigerators operate 24 hours a day, using more electricity annually than any other appliance in the home. Those made before 2001 are more inefficient, and investing in a newer model can save energy immediately, with significant savings over time, said David Mehlhaff, BPU chief communications officer.

To receive a BPU rebate, customers need to remove and replace older refrigerators with a new Energy-Star® qualified refrigerator from a retailer. Then, request and submit the BPU Rebate Application by calling 913-573-9997. A copy of the dated sales receipt showing manufacturer, model number and appliance purchase price will need to be submitted with a copy of the signed document of disposal of the old refrigerator. BPU will mail rebates within six to eight weeks.

The rebate was scheduled for BPU residential and commercial customers in the service area on refrigerator purchases made between January 1 and December 31, 2016. However, because of the overwhelming response, the new rebate deadline is April 30, 2016. There is a limit of one rebate per household.
