Plenty of money remains for Mississippians to get rebates by upgrading to more energy-efficient appliances nearly two weeks after the program started.

The Clarion-Ledger reports about $1.4 million is left from the $2.8 million the federal government allocated for Mississippi.

Karen Bishop, bureau manager for the Mississippi Development Authority's stimulus money division, tells The Clarion-Ledger the money, part of the federal economic stimulus package, is available until Feb. 17, 2012. But the remaining funds likely will be gone long before then.

Some 41 percent of that money has been set aside for pending rebates, which range from $50 for freezers to $750 for geothermal heat pumps.
