Iowa is launching a program similar to “cash for clunkers,” except it’s for household appliances. It will offer rebates to those who upgrade things like washing machines, refrigerators and dishwashers to more energy efficient models. Chuck Atwood is Manager of Archer Appliance and Electronics in Washington. He expects the program to go fairly fast because there’s not a lot of funds available when considering how many people might want to take advantage of the rebates it in Iowa.
