We've been talking a lot about tax credits and rebates on the blog recently. We may sound like a broken record, but we really want you to be aware of the incentives available if you are considering a purchase for your home.

If you read Monday and Tuesday's entries, you know that people who bought and installed energy-saving products in 2009 are now thinking about claiming their tax credits.

If you have been thinking about making a purchase, now is the time to act. Some of the tax credits are only available through 2010 (others, including geothermal heat pumps, solar energy systems, wind energy systems, and fuel cells, are available through 2016).

If appliances are on your list, check out which rebates your state is offering. Some of the programs have already begun and others are starting soon, so check out the details before you buy.

And finally, please share your plans!

What do you plan to buy for an energy tax credit or rebate in 2010?

Each Thursday, you have the chance to share your thoughts on a question about energy efficiency or renewable energy for consumers. Please comment with your answers, and also feel free to respond to other comments.
