Recycle your old appliances on 7/24

Pepco is hosting its first-ever D.C. “Appliance Swap” on July 24 at the Home Depot on Rhode Island Ave. Customers can bring in old, inefficient appliances that Pepco will safely recycle or dispose of at no cost to the customer. Pepco will also be handing out applications for and information about available rebates on the purchase of certain ENERGY STAR ® qualified appliances.

During the event, Pepco will announce the winners of its $5,000 D.C. Appliance Rebates Sweepstakes. Each winner will receive a $1,000 Home Depot ® gift card towards the purchase of new, more efficient appliances.

For a limited time, Pepco customers in the District can receive rebates:
· $50 rebates for ENERGY STAR® qualified refrigerators,
· $25 rebates for ENERGY STAR® qualified room air conditioners, and
· $20 rebates for electric water heaters w/energy factor of 0.93 or greater.
Customers also can also take advantage of instant discounts on high-efficiency compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs). Customers can save $1.50 on single bulbs and $3 on multipacks when shopping at participating retail locations throughout the District.
