On Thursday, April 22nd, the City of Chula Vista will launch the new Chula Vista Appliance Exchange Rebate Program in partnership with the Chula Vista Chamber of Commerce.ï¿½ The program will provide an instant $20 rebate for community members who purchase high efficiency refrigerators, clothes washers, and room air conditioners from a participating Chula Vista appliance store and install the new appliance at a Chula Vista address.ï¿½ The energy-saving new appliances must replace existing appliances which are to be properly disposed through a certified recycler. The local program will complement the California Cash for Appliances Program which also begins on April 22 and offers mail-in rebates up to $200 for eligible appliances.ï¿½ Both rebates can be combined with up to $150 in current utility rebates to further lower overall purchase costs. Participating local appliance stores include Best Buy (Otay Ranch Town Center or South Bay Marketplace), The Home Depot (Rancho del Rey or EastLake Terraces), K-Mart (Rancho del Rey), and Sears (Chula Vista Center).
The Chula Vista Appliance Exchange Rebate Program is being funded through the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act and rebates will be offered until funds are exhausted.
