TRENTON – The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) and its Clean Energy Program (NJCEP) launched a new rebate for energy-efficient clothes dryers. The program is providing $100 for the purchase of select qualified ENERGY STAR clothes dryers. ENERGY STAR certified clothes dryers use on average 20% less energy than conventional models helping reduce utility bills.
When purchasing a new clothes dryer, you should consider the following:
* Use sensor drying instead of timed drying. ENERGY STAR dryer models incorporate advanced moisture sensors to help you reduce your dryer’s energy use. This feature ensures that your dryer will automatically shut off when clothes are dry.
