SCE&G Gives Customers Chance to Turn Old Fridge into New Cash

Cayce, S.C. (March 1, 2018) – Starting today, SCE&G customers have a chance to win one of three smart thermostat prize packages. Valued at $400 each, this limited-time offer is available to SCE&G residential electric customers who have their old freezers and refrigerators picked up through SCE&G’s appliance recycling program by April 30. Scheduling a pickup is easy, convenient and free of charge.

Each prize pack includes a Honeywell Lyric Round Wi-Fi Enabled Thermostat, two advanced power strips, two low-flow shower heads and five LED bulbs.

“Managing your thermostat is one of the best ways to save energy, and a smart thermostat makes it even easier,” said Gerald Freeman, who manages SCE&G’s appliance recycling program. “We know our customers are interested in saving energy, and we wanted to provide them this chance to help save energy at home as the temperatures outside start heating up. Not only do they have a chance to win these energy-saving prize packs, all participating customers will still get $50 back in cash when they recycle their old refrigerators and freezers.”

Customers who recycle their old refrigerators and freezers may reduce their energy usage by as much as 1,140 kilowatt hours (kWh) per year. This represents an annual energy bill savings of approximately $150.

To participate:

  • Be an SCE&G residential electric customer.
  • Have a full-size refrigerator or freezer, between 10 to 30 cubic feet, in working condition and cooling properly.
  • Schedule free and easy pickup between March 1 and April 30 at or by calling 1-877-510-7234.
