The rebirth of utility-rebate programs continues. Electrical Wholesaling's editors found more than 50 rebate programs available through electric utilities, government agencies and public utility commissions. Rebate programs are constantly changing, so check frequently with local utilities on the status of rebates in your market area. These programs are generally funded and budgeted on an annual basis, and once funds run dry, no rebates are usually offered until the following year.
