When it’s time to buy a new refrigerator, freezer or clothes washer, you may be tempted to hang on to your old appliance as “backup.” However, those old appliances can add hundreds of dollars to your utility bill every year.
Energy Trust will handle all the heavy lifting with free in-home pickup, recycle your unit responsibly and you’ll get a cash incentive of $30.
