Contractors have exhausted their portion of South Carolina?s cash-for-appliance-clunker rebate program.
The last of the $1.95 million was taken at 1:19 p.m. today ? a little more than 30 hours after they became available.
Those rebates went toward energy-efficient central air conditioning units, heat pumps, gas furnaces and water heaters.
Contractors reserved the rebates and gave mail-in forms to customers.
The state still has more than $1.5 million available for instant at-the-register rebates for smaller appliances, including washers, dishwashers, refrigerators and room air conditioners.
