The Latest Good Idea?

Latest in Stimulus: 'Cash for Refrigerators'

Coming this fall, a clunkers-type program to boost sales of energy-efficient home appliances will authorize rebates of $50 to $200

The refrigerator uses more energy than anything else in your home -- new energy star refrigerators use less energy than a 60-watt bulb. Top-load washers use 45-55 gallons of water per load, while front-loading washers use between 10-15 gallons, based on brand. Switching to energy efficient appliances protects the environment by using less energy (often generated by coal) and water. The stimulus is helping to create new jobs (Whirlpool employs over 20,000 American workers), clean up the environment, and gets people spending money again.
