EnergyStar Appliance Rebate

MMLD’s Appliance Rebate Program gives residential customers a rebate for purchasing energy efficient appliances.


EnergyStar Appliance Rebate Program

The Merrimac Municipal Light Department, in an effort to improve energy efficiency in the Town of Merrimac, is pleased to once again offer residents who purchase energy efficient EnergyStar® appliances, rebates to help offset the cost of qualified appliances. By offsetting the cost of these appliances, the MMLD hopes to promote energy conservation and have an impact on the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
