Appliance Rebate Program a Mixed Blessing, Says NPD

The major appliance market is looking to the Energy Star Efficient Appliance Rebate Program to boost falling sales, but timing and a lack of consistency from state to state may be an issue, according to Mark Delaney, NPD Group’s point person on major appliances and home improvement. Delaney told HCN that the launching of the program, which is set to begin sometime between early December and January, the heart of the holiday season, might be a hindrance.  He said that the program will be difficult for national retailers to asses, since the parameters, rebate allotments, as well as what makes/models will qualify will vary from state to state.  11/12 HCN
