The Governor's Energy Office is kicking off a campaign making $18 million in rebates available for Coloradans to buy energy-saving appliances and make their homes more energy efficient.
Energy Office Director Tom Plant will discuss the "Recharge Colorado" program Tuesday at the Sears store in Denver's Cherry Creek neighborhood. The state will officially launch the effort April 19 with a call center and Web site.
The federal stimulus funds are expected to be enough for about 75,000 rebates for such appliances as dishwashers, washing machines, refrigerators and hot-water heaters.
People can also apply for rebates to install solar-power systems in homes and small wind turbines for homes and business.
