For Immediate Release
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. 14-16. 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 and dryers, heat
pumps and compact fluorescent light and LED 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 3,400
rebates to Maryland customers in 2014 for the purchase of energy efficient
appliances and has paid approximately 14,700 rebates since the program began in
2009. The value of the rebates ranges from $50 to $500. Rebate forms are
available in stores and at www.delmarva.com/ApplianceRebates. Customers can expect to receive
