AEP Ohio is offering a larger incentive for parting ways with that old energy guzzling refrigerator. Now through December 24, customers will receive $60 when they recycle their old inefficient refrigerators and freezers.
In addition to the $60 incentive, customers who have an inefficient refrigerator removed from their home can save up to $150 a year in electricity costs. Relying on technology that's out of date, old refrigerators and freezers can use as much as three times more electricity than newer models built to much higher energy efficiency standards.
"There is no better time to clear out space in your garage or basement and make some extra cash, said Dave Tabata, AEP Ohio consumer programs manager. "When you combine the extra incentive with the energy savings, the reward really adds up."
AEP Ohio makes it simple for customers to save with the convenient pick-up of appliances at no cost. To participate in the program, AEP Ohio customers can simply call 1-877-545-4112, or visit AEPOhio.com/WasteLess. The program is limited to the removal of two units per household. Appliances to be recycled must be in working order, with inside measurements between 10 and 30 cubic feet - standard size for most models.
Units picked up through the program are transported to an appliance recycling facility operated by JACO Environmental. JACO safely removes hazardous materials from the old energy-guzzlers, reclaiming 95 percent of the materials in the appliances for reuse in manufacturing new products. Even the foam insulation is safely incinerated to generate electricity.
