Maryland Residential Customers Can Save Big This Weekend
SALISBURY, Md. - Delmarva Power is encouraging its Maryland residential customers to take advantage of its Appliance Rebate Program during the state's tax-free weekend, Feb. 16-18. During this period, customers will not have to pay the state's 6 percent sales tax when they purchase select ENERGY STAR certified products such as: standard size refrigerators, clothes washers, room air conditioners, dehumidifiers, heat pumps, and compact fluorescent light bulbs.
"This is a great opportunity for customers to combine Delmarva Power's rebates with the Shop Maryland Energy tax savings this weekend, and also take advantage of various retailers' Presidents Day sales," said John Allen, Delmarva Power Region Vice President. "Delmarva Power is proud to offer rebates on energy efficient appliances to help our customers save energy in their homes."
Delmarva Power paid more than 3,300 rebates to Maryland customers in 2012 for the purchase of energy efficient appliances. Maryland residential customers can receive rebates on many ENERGY STAR certified products such as clothes washers, dehumidifiers, freezers, refrigerators, and water heaters. The value of the appliance rebates ranges from $25 to $350. Rebate forms are available in stores and at delmarva.com/ApplianceRebates.
