Sept. 11, 2001 – If you've got a business that sells energy-efficient products such as wind generators, solar panels, solar hot water systems, and compact fluorescent lightbulbs, the V.I. Energy Office invites you to a meeting on St. Croix or St. Thomas about participating in an upcoming federal rebate program.
The rebate program this time does not include major appliances such as refrigerators, air-conditioning units and washing machines. "No appliances," Jamal Nielsen, spokesman for the energy office, said.
The St. Croix meeting will be held at the Planning and Natural Resources Department conference room on Monday, Sept. 17. The building, which is pink, is located across from the Ann Abramson Bus Terminal on the Queen Mary Highway in Mars Hill outside of Frederiksted.
The St. Thomas meeting will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 18, at the department conference room on the second floor at the Cyril E. King Airport terminal.
Both meetings are begin at 2 p.m.
The federal energy rebate program allows consumers to get a price break on energy-efficient items bought at local stores that agree to participate in the program. The items for which rebates are available change yearly. "This year, the focus is on renewable energy," Nielsen said.
