Appliance swap-out offers savings
The Great New York Appliance Swap is back in the borough offering cash rebates to purchase energy-efficient models.
The rebate amount becomes larger if an older appliance is brought in for recycling. A new refridgerator could get a $75 reabte and a washer could get $50 if purchased after Feb. 12.
The program is part of an incentive to reduce energy consumption. Appliances can be swapped at major retail stores.
