kitchenFlorida Gov. Charlie Crist has signed a bill that creates a rebate program for energy-efficient appliances.

Crist says the rebate program will “help Floridians buy appliances at discount rates, lower utility costs and benefit Florida businesses by stimulating sales of energy-efficient appliances.”

Under the bill, the Florida Energy and Climate Commission (FECC) will be authorized to manage the Energy-efficient Appliance Rebate Program. The FECC says Florida will be eligible to receive at least $18 million in federal funds to implement the rebate program.

Here’s what Florida residents can expect to save on new appliances that are covered under the rebate program:

  • Refrigerators, $290
  • Washers, freezers, dishwashers, $200
  • Room air conditioners, $65
  • Humidifiers, $40

who we are:

Early in 2008, St. Petersburg College recognized its responsibility to model to our students, employees and community ways to minimize global warming emissions and provide the knowledge to our graduates to help achieve a more environmentally friendly future. Because of this, the College made sustainability (defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs) a top priority. As a result, the Office for Sustainability was established.

what we do:

Working alongside internal and external partners, the Office for Sustainability focuses on the following areas of environmental stewardship: educational programs and corporate training, energy and natural resource conservation, green buildings and facilities, carbon emissions, recycling and student activities.
