  • So I swap an actual good for information (that i can find online)? No thanks ::bbm talk to the hand smiley::

    • We’re devastated you won’t be there.

      I actually just gave away 2 old window AC units that didn’t blow cold anymore. It would have been perfect for this event otherwise.

      So, before you poo-poo it, realize some people can legitimately benefit from it, especially if they had in mind to replace their old inefficient appliances.

  • I don’t understand what this event it?

    If you turn in an old appliance do you get a discount on new appliances? Are there any benefits for swapping or is the benefit just that you don’t have to pay for chucking your appliances in a recycling center or landfill?

    • Pepco wants to make it easier for our customers to make their homes more energy efficient. That’s why we’re offering to recycle old appliances at no charge, and providing information on rebates customers can receive for the purchase of new, more efficient ones. We’ll also be drawing the winners of our $5k Appliance Rebate Sweepstakes and providing information on other energy efficiency programs, like discounts on the purchase of CFL’s. There will also be interactive displays and activities focused on energy efficiency, as well as entertainment and refreshments. Hope to see you there!
