Southern California Edison: ‘Recycling your fridge can save you $180 a year!’
If you’re thinking of replacing your old fridge, then this is the best time to buy a new one. SCE will play you money in exchange of your old fridge. So instead of dumping a used up freezer of refrigerator in your house basement or in the garage, you can hand it over to SCE and you will be given of $50 per unit. This can save many customers over a hundred dollars a year in electricity costs. The refrigerator must be in SCE’s service address and must be in working conditions. They also can’t be small dorm refrigerators or large industrial models. The company will even pick up and dispose of the fridge for you. Just go here for instructions on how to schedule a pick up.
Get a $50 rebate when you buy a new Refrigerator
SCE will also give rebates to consumers that buy new ENERGY star compliant refrigerators. The fridge must be a new model that is your home’s primary fridge. Refrigerators that qualify for this rebate can be found on this list. This program is open for all SCE customers until December 31, 2012 or until the fund runs out. It’s a first come first served basis so you should check with SCE before applying for the program. The application can be downloaded here. It should be noted that some refrigerators already come with an instant rebate which will disqualify them from this program. The instant rebate is shown on the fridge receipt.
