CNMI Division of Energy Announces Energizing Insular Communities (EIC) Appliance Rebate Program

The CNMI Energy Division Office is pleased to inform residential homeowners on Saipan that unredeemed or expired Appliance Rebate Vouchers under Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands Energizing Insular Communities Energy Efficient, Energy Star Appliance Rebate Program (CNMI-EIC-EEESARP) will be made available to assist other interested residential homeowners in replacing old and inefficient appliances with ones that qualified Energy-Efficient/Energy Star rated products such as Refrigerators, Clothes Washers, Split and Window Type Air Conditioner units for a limited time or until funds run out, whichever comes first.  Due to limited funding availability, rebate vouchers will be available on a first-come, first-served basis for Saipan residents only. 

Appliances must replace existing models.  Residents with newly constructed or renovated homes are eligible to apply for new purchases of qualified Energy Efficient or Energy Star rated appliances. Residents impacted by the devastations of Typhoon Mangkhut and Super Typhoon Yutu are eligible, provided they have not already received similar assistance from local, federal, or private entities. Additional requirements or conditions may apply.

Rebate Applications will be available for distribution to the public beginning Monday, November 22, 2021, at the CNMI Energy Division Office located at House No. 1337, Ascencion Dr., Capital Hill, Saipan, MP 96950.  Except for original applications issued by the Division of Energy, applications that are digitally copied or reproduced will not be accepted.

Due to the continuing threat of COVID-19, the public is required to observe and comply with all health and safety protocols.  Masks are required at all times during the program services hours of operations.

For additional program information or questions, please contact the Division of Energy Office at 664-4480/1.

Office of the Governor Response to Dismissal of Lawsuit Filed Against the House Judiciary & Government Operations Committee

Yesterday, the Superior Court held that the Office of the Governor could not proceed with its case against the House Judiciary and Government Operations Committee. Although the Administration respects the decision of the Judge, we believe the decision is erroneous by ignoring and misinterpreting law and precedent. For example, in its rush to follow federal precedent, it skipped right over the plain text of the Commonwealth Constitution. Then it overlooked some of the most important protections found even in the federal cases — such as the rule that the legislature may subpoena the executive only when the information it needs is not reasonably available anywhere else. The decision will be appealed. It will be for the Supreme Court to ultimately decide the merits of this civil case.
