OCT. 2 ‘DOWN ON THE FARM’ SOLAR TOUR PROVIDES COST-CUTTING IDEAS FOR ENERGY-HUNGRY CHICKEN HOUSES, ELECTRIC VEHICLES (EVs) AND HOMES

(Carthage, MS – September 24, 2010)– Mississippi is helping build momentum to make the 2010 American Solar Energy Society (ASES) National Solar Tour the most successful grassroots solar event in history. The more than 650 tours featured in this year’s tour is nearly triple the number of tours featured in 2009, and more communities continue to join the movement each week.

State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program

ARRA allocated $2.8 million to Mississippi to develop and administer a residential rebate program for the purchase of ENERGY STAR-rated appliances. MDA’s Energy Division will partner with utility companies and retailers to promote the program statewide, encouraging Mississippians to replace existing, energy inefficient appliances with new ones. This rebate program will save energy and stimulate the economy by encouraging consumers to replace old appliances with new ENERGY STAR qualified models.

Can Energy Efficiency Tax Credit be Carried Over to Future Years?

If you purchase an energy-efficient product or renewable energy system for your home, you may be eligible for a federal tax credit. Please note, not all ENERGY STAR qualified products qualify for a tax credit. ENERGY STAR distinguishes energy efficient products which, although they may cost more to purchase than standard models, will pay you back in lower energy bills within a reasonable amount of time, without a tax credit.
