Warringah residents save $650,000 on power bills with Fridge Buyback
The Fridge Buyback Program operating under the NSW Government’s Energy Savings Scheme has saved Warringah residents over $650,000 on their power bills per year.
Fridge Buyback now targets old energy-guzzling upright freezers, as well as the big old fridges in people’s garages.
Old fridges and freezers are some of the biggest energy users in the home, costing residents an average of $300 a year to operate.
Getting rid of the old beer fridge in the garage is one of the easiest steps households can take to cut their power bills.
Second fridges or upright freezers must be in regular use, built before 1996 and 200 litres or greater in size.
A $35 rebate is paid for collection from homes with six steps or less. Collection is free, but no rebate is paid, where collection involves between 7-20 steps.
