Puget Sound Energy is seeking old, inefficient refrigerators and clothes washers and to replace with a limited number of Energy Star qualified models – for free. PSE also will remove the old appliances when it delivers the new one.

New models will be up to four times more efficient and can save customers $200 a year on their energy bill.

In order to qualify, customers must own the old appliance and have residential PSE electric service. Replacement refrigerators are a basic white, single-door, top-freezer model. Replacement clothes washers come in top and front load options.

For an old refrigerator to qualify for free replacement, it should be:

Manufactured on or before 1992 and currently in working condition

10 to 30 cubic feet in size

The primary food storage in the kitchen

Plugged into a properly grounded (3 prong) outlet

For an old clothes washer to qualify for free replacement, it should be:

Manufactured in 1997 or before and in working condition

Connected to an electric water heater and used with an electric dryer

Connected to a properly functioning water hose

Plugged into a properly grounded (3-prong) outlet

Customers can figure out the age of their appliance by checking inside the door or on the back for a label with the year it was manufactured, or by visiting http://www.appliance411.com/service/date-code.php.

Those who are interested can learn if they qualify by calling 1-877-341-2314, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. More information can be found at pse.com/appliancereplacement.
