Did you know?

  • Old, inefficient refrigerators can use two to three times more electricity than new ENERGY STAR® models.
  • An extra refrigerator and/or freezer can cost $292 on Oahu, $314 on Maui and $336 on Hawaii Island* to operate each year.

*Actual savings may vary depending on the age and condition of the removed appliance and the electricity rates of each island.
