You must receive permanent electric service from United Power to qualify. Applications must be submitted within 120 days of purchase. Appliance rebates and recycling credits will be issued as a credit on your electric bill. Please allow at least two billing cycles for rebate to appear. United Power reserves the right to inspect the installation of any rebated appliance. Please review program details very carefully.
To qualify for rebates, your appliance must be on the list of official Energy Star® qualifying appliances. Please review the list before purchasing your new appliance.
When an old refrigerator is moved to a garage or basement, it takes twice as much energy to keep your food cold and can cost over $100 a year to operate. To encourage recycling of old refrigerators, United Power members qualify for a refrigerator/freezer recycling credit to properly dispose of their old refrigerator or freezer. Don’t move that old refrigerator to the garage, recycle it to save energy and money!
- Limit 3 Recycling Credits per member account, per year.
- Proof of Recycling must be submitted with application. Qualified Proof of Recycling includes:
- Verification of retailer haul away (indicated on sales or delivery receipt).
- Receipt from an appliance recycling service.

Typically, clothes dryers do not receive the Energy Star® label. The best way to improve efficiency and save energy while doing laundry is by improving the efficiency of your clothes washer. High-efficiency clothes washers use less water to wash and wring out more water from your clothes, which means your dryer doesn’t have to work as hard or run as long.
Why do you need the original EnergyGuide label from my appliance?
The ORIGINAL EnergyGuide label is required for all rebate requests in order to verify purchase of an approved Energy Star® appliance. Your model number should appear in the upper right corner of your EnergyGuide label.
I didn’t buy a new refrigerator, but I want to recycle the one in my garage. Can I get a Recycling Credit?
Yes. United Power’s Recycling Credit is available to members for recycling old refrigerators. You must provide proof that either a retailer hauled your old appliance away or that a reputable appliance recycler disposed of your refrigerator or freezer.
