How to Claim National Grid Refrigerator Rebates Easily

So, you upgraded your refrigerator, and now you wonder what to do with the old one. Instead of paying someone to haul it away, you can claim a . Do it right, and you'll not only be rid of your obsolete appliance, but you'll also have more money in your pocket.

What Is National Grid?

One of the largest investor-owned utility companies in the United States, National Grid supplies electricity and natural gas to more than 20 million people throughout Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.

The company offers a range of money-back rebates that encourage homeowners and small businesses to make the switch to energy-conserving products such as Wi-Fi-enabled thermostats, thermostatic radiator valves, low-flow showerheads, and more efficient appliances.

Five Reasons to Take Advantage of the National Grid Refrigerator Rebate

  1. Protect the environment from hazardous waste. Sending an old refrigerator to a landfill not only wastes resources but chemicals contained in obsolete appliances are also known to cause significant damage to the environment. According to Energy Star, vintage refrigerators, freezers, window air conditioners, and dehumidifiers are made with ozone-depleting chemicals, including refrigerants, foams, and blowing agents along with oils, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), and mercury.
  2. Don't break the law by leaving an old refrigerator on the curb. Leave an old appliance on the curb, and you can be ticketed or fined. In the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, anyone who leaves a refrigerator with attached doors where it may be within reach of unattended children can be fined one thousand dollars. Other states served by National Grid enforce similar laws. To avoid being fined, take advantage of a recycling or rebate program.
  3. Don't pay a hefty price for hauling your old fridge away. Sure, you can hire someone to haul away your old refrigerator, but be prepared to pay. In New York, hiring a company to remove your old appliances can cost upward of $200, says Thumbtack. Similar prices are found in Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
  4. Make room in your garage. These days, indoor storage space comes at a premium price. There is no good reason to let a non-working or inefficient fridge take up valuable garage space. The National Grid refrigerator rebate will free up space that you can use for sporting goods, camping gear, a new workbench, or a pool table.
  5. Add dollars to your wallet. Money-back for something you were going to get rid of anyway certainly seems like a win-win deal. Not only will you spare the environment and precious groundwater from contamination, but you'll also have an extra $50 to spend.

Who Is Eligible for a National Grid Refrigerator Rebate

Originally offered in July 2014 to residential customers only, the National Grid refrigerator rebate can now be claimed by homeowners, renters, and small businesses. The utility company partners with an appliance recycler JACO to retrieve old fridges in working order. Units must measure between 10 and 30 cubic feet on the inside. Electric customers can recycle up to two refrigerators per year via the rebate plan.
