Some of Iowa’s $2.7 million in rebates for energy-efficient appliances made its way into the hands of consumers who purchased those appliances in Pella. At Van Berkum Appliance, owner Robin Van Berkum says she sold around 15 qualifying energy-efficient appliances in the weeks after the rebate reservations were distributed. She says the program generated increased traffic in her store, which was a positive effect.

Dot Bruxvoort at Bruxvoort’s Cecorating Center in Pella says their business sold 20 to 25 appliances as part of the rebate program, and says though there was some frustration for customers regarding the limited amount of rebates, the overall response was positive.
