Agriculture Announces $62.5 Million for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Loans and Grants

The federal government will dangle more cash in front of recession-weary Americans soon in the hope they will get out and spend money at stores around the country. The DOE is making available $300 million to consumers for the purchase of new, energy-efficient, home appliances in the latest variation of Cash for Clunkers. Money for the program comes from the federal stimulus legislation approved by Congress in early 2009. The program will be administered by the states, which are still developing plans for releasing money through the appliance rebate program. The program will start in some states before Thanksgiving, offering consumers from $50 to $200 on a wide array of products.  09/21 Providence
