I’ve blogged before about the expense of keeping an elderly refrigerator or freezer in use simply because it still works.
I bet you wouldn’t be doing that if you realized you were paying up to $150 per year in energy costs to keep it humming.
Well, it’s the last month many energy providers, including Connexus Energy and Dakota Electric Association, not only will haul away and recycle your refrigerator for free but give you $35.
But there are still plenty of ongoing refrigerator and freezer “bounty” programs (Xcel’s program is ongoing, as far as I can tell) though your ability to participate depends on your utility company.
Is your utility company offering a bounty?
