Puget Sound Energy Wants to Upgrade Your Old Refrigerator for Free!
Older appliances use far more energy than new efficient models and could be racking up extra costs on your electric bill each year.
For a limited time in each community in PSE’s service area, we’ll be rounding up old, inefficient refrigerators and replacing them with a limited number of ENERGY STAR® qualified models for free. You heard that right: FREE!
There is no cost for the new energy-saving refrigerators, their delivery or the removal and recycling of your old appliance. Start the process now by calling 1-877-341-2314 (Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

What kind of free refrigerator will I get?
You’ll receive a free ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator of similar cubic feet as your current model.* Your new, free refrigerator will be a basic, white, single-door, top-freezer ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerator that uses less energy, runs more quietly and can lower electric bills. *15, 18, or 21 cu ft. models available only.
How do I qualify?

In working/ cooling condition
The primary food storage in the kitchen
