NV Energy Increases Rebate to $50 for Limited Time To Recycle Old Refrigerators This Summer

Jul 6, 2011

NV Energy has increased the rebate offered through its refrigerator recycling program to $50 during July and August. In addition to the rebate, NV Energy will pick up the second refrigerator or freezer for free and then recycle 95 percent of the unit.

Old refrigerators and freezers use up to four times more electricity than newer energy-efficient models. Customers can save up to $140 a year on utility bills by eliminating a second refrigerator or freezer.

The rebate will return to its original amount of $30 in September.

To learn about program qualifications and to schedule a pick-up, visit the NV Energy website at or call 877-289-8260. Units must be in working order and be at least 10 cubic feet in size. Participants must own the refrigerator or freezer and the offer is limited to two units for each address.
