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.
  • Step 2: The retailer will provide you with an application and then schedule pick up of your old, working refrigerator. Or download the application, see below.
  • Step 3: Sign the application and have the hauler stamp it upon picking up your old unit. The application must be postmarked within sixty (60) days of the purchase. If you downloaded the application, you may email it to: Or mail to: Hawaii Energy, P.O. Box 3920, Honolulu, HI 96812. Your rebate will be mailed to you within 6-8 weeks.

*The Rid-A-Fridge and Trade-Up offer may not be combined. Trade-Up applications are available on a first-come, first-served basis with approved retailers during point of purchase, to ensure proper recycling. Rebate is subject to change without notice.
