SIGNAL HILL, CALIF. -- Ted Suarez, center, a salesman at Howard's Appliance & Flat Screen Superstores in Signal Hill, Calif., talks with sister Jeanie Yugar, left, and Pamela Yugar as they both shop for a new washer during the California Cash for Appliances program on April 22, 2010.
The State of California has been allocated $35.2 million in federal American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) funds to participate in the State Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP). Consumers who turn in older appliances will recieve rebates for purchases on qualified home washers and refrigerators during the rebate period, or, until the state has spent all the rebate money.
