Old refrigerators and freezers can use 3-4 times more electricity than newer, energy-efficient models. Purchase an ENERGY STAR® refrigerator to replace an older model and you can get a $150 incentive.
Kitchen Demand Ventilation Control
Kitchen ventilation exhaust hoods with demand controls on the ventilation motors use temperature and/or smoke sensing to adjust ventilation rates. This saves energy comparing with the traditional 100% on/off kitchen ventilation system, and you can get a $700 per horsepower incentive.
