Does your refrigerator guzzle energy?

You may qualify for a free replacement from Puget Sound Energy

BELLEVUE, Wash. (May 8, 2013) – Puget Sound Energy is visiting homes in King and Pierce counties from now until June 30 to save residential electric customers from energy guzzling old refrigerators. For a limited time, PSE will be rounding up King and Pierce county customers’ old, inefficient refrigerators and replacing them with ENERGY STAR® qualified models for free! The new units are up to four times more efficient and can save customers more than $200 a year in energy costs. Customers should call early to book an appointment, quantities are limited.

Refrigerators will be replaced with units of the same cubic feet as customers’ current model. Replacement refrigerators will be a basic, white, single-door, top-freezer model that are quieter than customers’ existing refrigerator and frost-free so they never have to be defrosted. In addition to replacing customers’ inefficient old refrigerators, PSE will remove and recycle the old appliance upon delivery of the new unit, all for free.

Does your refrigerator qualify?

Old refrigerators must be manufactured in or before 1992, in working condition, between 10-30 cubic feet, the primary food storage in the kitchen, and plugged into a properly grounded (3-prong) outlet. PSE electric customers who live in a single-family home with four or less attached units can visit or call 1-877-341-2314, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to learn if they qualify and to schedule delivery of their new refrigerator, while supplies last.

PSE electric customers who live in a multifamily building with five or more attached units can have their landlord, property manager, or property owner call PSE’s multifamily program hotline at 1-855-291-9574 to learn if they qualify and how to participate.
