The money for eco-friendly appliances has run out.
Cash for Appliances Washington reached the final stage Monday, as organizers said all rebate funds had been committed and await processing.
The popular state Department of Commerce program helped more than 40,000 Washington consumers transition from outdated appliances to Energy Star models.
Consumers can still apply for rebates, but any applications received now will be placed on a waiting list. In the event any applications under evaluation do not qualify, the waiting list will be processed in the order received. The process should continue for the next seven weeks until the money has been exhausted.
The federal Department of Energy funded the program and the state Department of Commerce acts as the administrator.
