Cautionary tale on LED rebate
Original post made by JimFruchterman, Old Palo Alto, on Jun 20, 2012
I got zero dollars back. Turns out that the rebate only goes for Energy Star LED lights, and most LED lights don't qualify. I have no idea why a few Philips ones are and most aren't.
So, if you saw the come-on in your utility bill and were rushing for the June 30th deadline, be careful. I completely missed the fine print. This isn't as easy as picking the wattage of the bulbs and toting up your savings.
