*Costs of electricity and savings vary over time, so it’s important to note that efficient appliances provide many other major benefits and hidden savings. Design changes made to use less electricity will often improve the appliance in other ways, resulting in a better quality product for you, with less maintenance needed. For example, ENERGY STAR® washers and dryers can typically wash more clothes in a single load and dry them faster – and let’s not forget that you’ll be making a significant contribution toward reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions and making Hawai‘i a better place for future generations..

Refrigerator Trade-up


A fridge aged 20 years or older uses about twice as much energy as a new ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator. If it’s time for an upgrade, you can get a $250 rebate when you purchase a qualifying ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator from a participating retailer.

Rebate Instructions (click to expand)

Please note: This rebate requires that you have a working refrigerator (14 cu. ft or larger) to trade in.

  • Step 1: Purchase a new ENERGY STAR® certified refrigerator (greater than 16 cu. ft.) from a participating retailer. At the time of purchase, arrange to have your old, working refrigerator picked up by your retailer.
  • Step 2: Fill out the rebate application. You can download this using the button below.
  • Step 3: Sign the application and mail to Hawaii Energy, P.O. Box 3920, Honolulu, HI 96812 and must be postmarked within sixty (60) days of the purchase. Or, you may also email your application
