It takes a lot of natural resource to produce energy and bring it to our household. We are also affecting the natural water resources like lakes and rivers while we use water for washing and cleaning.
Using Energy Star appliances will help us save a lot of electricity and water. Many government bodies are promoting the use of energy saver appliances and to make it more aggressive they offer rebate. The rebate will make the energy saving appliances more affordable to local people.
The rebate for energy savings varies in every region. You have to check what rebate is applicable depending upon the appliance and the government policies in your region.
Just keep in mind, you are already saving water and power by using Energy Star dishwasher. And whatever rebate (if) you receive is a bonus on top of it!
Search for your local government website for the rebate or tax benefits on your dishwasher.
