TUPPER LAKE - A new program being offered in the Village of Tupper Lake allows residents to receive incentives for purchasing Energy Star appliances.
The Tupper Lake Appliance Advantage program is designed to encourage homeowners to buy Energy Star labeled models and in turn receive incentives worth up to $125 per appliance installed.
Village Mayor Mickey Desmarais said the program is a win-win for consumers and the environment.
"By encouraging our electric customers to upgrade to these more energy-efficient designs, we can make a positive impact on the environment while keeping costs down for consumers," he said.
Municipal Electric superintendent John Bouck noted the program also reduces the peak electrical load for the village.
"People really ought to look into this program," he said. "They have nothing to lose."
Energy Star products use state-of-the-art technology while simultaneously requiring less energy. Electric customers in Tupper Lake can receive incentive rebates for air conditioners, ceiling fans, clothes washers, dehumidifiers, dishwashers, electric hot water heaters, refrigerators, and more.
To participate in the Appliance Advantage program, residents should pick up an application form at the village offices on Park Street, or by inquiring at local appliance stores.
