Save energy (and money) in Texas this weekend

Posted: Updated:

SHERMAN, Texas -- As always, there are big sales over the Memorial Day weekend.

In Texas, water-efficient and Energy Star products will be on sale and tax-free. This includes clothes washers, air conditioners, refrigerators, ceiling fans, and even light bulbs.

The Texas Comptroller's office estimates shoppers will save about $12.5 million in state and local sales taxes during the Energy Star Sales Tax Holiday.

"We do air conditioning work which has an energy rating that would qualify for the discount, so we could put that in for our customers," said Reynolds Electric owner Danny Reynolds, who added that a more efficient air conditioner can save homeowners between 20 and 40 percent on utility bills.

The tax-free weekend begins Saturday and continues through Monday.
