Figure 1. Appliances tested in a pilot study to identify the most suitable appliance design to be used in the main study. (A) Traditional Twin-block: Removable upper and lower acrylic plates, each plate has matching pieces to encourage the lower jaw to slide forward, bilateral hooks were added to insert vertical elastics. (B) Metallic fastener Twin-block: Removable upper and lower vacuum formed plates and a metallic fastener (TAP) is used to hook the upper and the lower plates enabling the mandible to be advanced forward. (C) Clear elastic Twin-block: Removable upper and lower vacuum formed plates with matching pieces to encourage the lower jaw to slide forward, bilateral plastic hooks were added to accommodate vertical elastics. (D) Sham Twin-block: Removable upper and lower vacuum formed plates, without any lower jaw advancing device.

With funding provided by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, DOE developed the State Energy Efficiency Appliance Rebate Program (SEEARP) to spur economic activity and invest in long-term energy savings by helping consumers replace older, inefficient appliances with new, efficient models. SEEARP provided almost $300 million to the 56 U.S. states and territories to support state-level consumer rebate programs for efficient appliances from December 1, 2009 to February 17, 2012. The successes and challenges of SEEARP provide valuable lessons for designing and running a consumer-focused appliance rebate program. Two reports provide results and program design lessons.
