HARDI to Provide SEEARP Guide and Resource for Members

Over 40 U.S. states have had their State Energy Efficiency Appliance Rebate Programs approved and the rest are expected to follow suit by the end of January. SEEARPs are funded by a $300 mil Department of Energy ARRA appropriation with which states can offer rebates to residents who purchase Energy Star or better appliances. HARDI is isolating those states that have chosen to include HVAC products in their rebate programs, and will be providing updates on those and other states as more plans are approved or details are released. This resource will be made available to HARDI distributor members in early January because the HVAC industry will need to be ready to quickly mobilize to effectively compete with retail products for these first-come, first-served rebate funds in most states.
