LAS VEGAS -- NV Energy is offering a $50 rebate for customers to recycle their second refrigerators this summer; inefficient refrigerators waste energy as a result of working harder and longer in hot garages to maintain their temperature. In addition to the rebate, NV Energy will pick up the extra refrigerator or freezer for free and then recycle 95 percent of the unit, making it the only free appliance pickup service in Las Vegas.
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.
