Tallahassee, FL (AP) - Gov. Charlie Crist has signed a bill
that allocates $31.3 million in federal stimulus money for rebates
on the purchase of energy saving devices.

Crist signed the legislation (HB 15-A) on Wednesday, just one
day after Florida lawmakers passed it during a special session.

It funds rebates on solar energy and high-efficiency heating and
air conditioning systems.

The state has a backlog of 13,000 unpaid applications for solar
rebates with an estimated value of $52 million. As a result,
applicants will get a bit less than what they were promised.

The $1,5000 heating-air conditioning rebates are for
applications received by Nov. 30 on systems bought or contracted
for between Aug. 30 and Sept. 14.
