Does your Electric Company Give YOU Rebates for Buying Energy Efficient Models??
I live in the PPL Electric area, and they have several rebates/incentives for buying Energy Star Appliances. You can even get cash for recycling your old appliances! I got my neighbor a $50 rebate for her new washer and dryer, and my mom was able to get $75 for buying her new Refrigerator. Per PPL Appliance Recycling PageYour old, spare refrigerator or freezer can use two to three times more electricity than newer, ENERGY STAR® models. Now you can have those inefficient appliances picked up for free, get paid for doing so and reduce your electricity use. Plus, 95 percent of the materials from these appliances will be recycled and not just dumped in landfills.
The refrigerator or freezer must be in working condition and be between 10 and 30 cubic feet in size. You must own the unit and be a PPL Electric Utilities customer. Limit two units per address per calendar year. A $35 incentive check will be mailed to you after the appliance is collected.
Bonus: If you have inefficient, working window air conditioners, we will have those picked up at the same time as your refrigerator or freezer and give you an additional $25 per unit, limit two per household per calendar year.
And now, PPL Electric Utilities has teamed up with Best Buy and Sears to offer our customers a convenient way to buy a new refrigerator AND arrange to recycle the old one at the same time. Customers can receive from PPL Electric Utilities a $50 rebate for the new refrigerator and a $35 check for recycling the old refrigerator, and Best Buy or Sears will make arrangements for delivery and pickup. Call 1-877-270-3522 or see a sales representative at Best Buy or Sears
Also, Per the PPL Appliance Rebate page:
For a limited time, PPL Electric Utilities is offering our customers E-power rebates on qualifying energy-efficient equipment and ENERGY STAR® appliance purchases through our Energy Efficiency Rebate Program. You'll find rebates on everything from refrigerators and dishwashers to office equipment and more. Plus the improved energy efficiency can save you money for years to come, so act now.
