ENERGY STAR® Certified Refrigerators
Current Rebate: $50 - $100 Mail-in Rebate
Did you know in most households the refrigerator is the single highest energy consuming kitchen appliance? ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators use high efficiency compressors, improved insulation, and more accurate temperature as well as defrost mechanisms to use less electricity with available top, bottom and side by side freezer styles.
Today’s ENERGY STAR certified refrigerators are 20% more energy efficient than the minimum federal standard and "Most Efficient" designated models are 30% more efficient than new, non-certified models.
LIPA is offering their residential electric customers $50 back on the purchase of any ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator greater than 16 cubic feet, or $100 back on any 2013 ENERGY STAR ‘Most Efficient’ model.

If possible, place your refrigerator away from appliances that generate heat, such as ovens and dishwashers. Otherwise the refrigerator will have to work much harder to cool and its efficiency will decrease. Read more tips
