LIPA Energy Rebate
Assemblywoman Audrey I. Pheffer (D-Queens) wants area residents to be aware of LIPA's Efficiency Long Island Program, which offers rebates and initiatives to LIPA's residential and commercial customers.
LIPA's Efficiency Long Island Program is a 10-year, $924 million energy efficiency effort launched this year, which offers rebates and initiatives to help customers reduce their energy usage and thereby lowering their bills.
"In these tough economic times, energy costs can become a burden. This program offers LIPA customers the opportunity to receive rebates for purchasing qualifying appliances that will save energy, while also lowering their bills," said Pheffer.
From now until September 30, 2009 LIPA is, for the first time, offering electric customers who purchase or replace their older single-speed pool pump with a two-speed pump, a $75 rebate. By installing a variable-speed pump, a $200 rebate can be received.
In addition, LIPA is also offering residential customers $75 back on the purchase of select standard size ENERGY STAR® qualified refrigerators larger than 7.5 cubic feet.
