Switching out your old appliances to ENERGY STAR® certified models will help you save energy and reduce your monthly electric bills.


Refrigerator Trade-Up $150 REBATE

An old refrigerator uses about twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator.

For a limited time, receive a $150 rebate* when you purchase a qualifying ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator from a participating retailer. Rebate requires that you have a working refrigerator (14 cu. ft or larger) to trade in. The participating retailer will haul it away when they deliver your new model. We make sure it’s recycled properly, this is a requirement of the program.

How to get started

  • Step 1: Purchase a new ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator (greater than 16 cu. ft.) from a participating retailer below.
  • Step 2: The retailer will schedule pick up of your old, working refrigerator.
  • Step 3: Obtain the application: from the retailer, download a printable copy or apply online. Complete the application. Have the hauler stamp your printed copy upon picking up your old working unit. For online applications please upload a copy of your receipt showing the haul away on it.
  • Step 4: Submit within sixty (60) days of purchase the completed rebate application along with the receipt/invoice showing the make and model of the appliance and proof of the haul away. By mail send to: Hawaii Energy, P.O. Box 3920, Honolulu, HI 96812. OR if you applied online you must upload/scan the receipt. Please allow 6-8 weeks for the processing from the received date.
