SWEPCO Encourages Customers to Take Advantage of Tax Exempt Energy Efficient Appliance Purchases this Memorial Day Weekend

From the release:

AEP Southwestern Electric Power Company (SWEPCO) customers in East and North Texas should consider shopping tax-free this Memorial Day weekend. “This will be a great opportunity to make purchases if you are thinking of replacing a worn-out appliance or just simply want to save money on your electric bill,” says Phil Watkins, SWEPCO manager, energy efficiency and consumer programs.

As part of legislation passed by the 80th Texas Legislature in 2007 under energy provisions in House Bill 3693, a sales-tax free holiday was set up for certain ENERGY STAR® appliances and systems purchased over the three days. This tax-free event offers customers the opportunity to take advantage of savings on these ENERGY STAR® certified energy-efficient products only: refrigerators with a sales price not to exceed $2,000, dishwashers, clothes washers, ceiling fans, dehumidifiers and fluorescent light bulbs. Central and room air conditioner units also are eligible if the sales price does not exceed $6,000.
