After the success of appliance rebate programs in other states, Massachusetts is giving the cash for clunkers idea a go. The state will launch its own rebate program on Earth day, April 22, in a bid to get consumers to trade in energy draining appliances for more efficient models. Similar programs in Illinois and Florida were so popular, consumers drained the allotted budgets for the rebates in 11 hours in Illinois and in Florida’s case, about two days.
