Hawaii Energy Bounty Program

Posted: Updated:

(Hawaii News Now) - Hawaii Energy, the statewide energy conservation and efficiency program, wants to help residents achieve energy savings in their homes by incentivizing them to turn in old refrigerators or freezers.  In honor of Earth Day 2013, Hawaii Energy will pick up and recycle old working refrigerators or freezers for free and pay cash for eliminating those old units.  Oahu households will receive $25, and Maui and Hawaii Island households will get $65.   

To participate in the Bounty Program, on Oahu call 537-5577, and on Maui and Hawaii Island call toll free at 1-877-231-8222.  The Bounty Program is offered through June 2013, or as long as funding lasts.  Incentives are available on a first-come, first-served basis to electric utility account holders, with a limit of one refrigerator and one freezer per household.  The appliances must be full size (at least 14 cubic feet) and currently in use to qualify.  Some restrictions may apply, call for more information.   

Hawaii Energy has two other refrigerator offers.  Residents can receive a $50 rebate when they purchase a new ENERGY STAR® refrigerator (with a minimum size of 16 cubic feet and price of $600 or less).  Or, if they purchase a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator and recycle the old working refrigerator, residents can get a $125 rebate with Hawaii Energy's "Trade-up for Cool Cash" offer.

In addition, Hawaii Energy, has increased its instant rebate on new, qualifying solar water heating systems from $750 to $1,000.  Residents should act soon, as this rebate is only for a limited time.
