refrigerator replacement program

Habitat for Humanity of New Castle County wants to help ease the energy burden for qualified Delmarva Power customers one refrigerator at a time.


In partnership with Energize Delaware

The Impact


average annual savings for qualified low income Delawareans

energy inefficient refrigerators replaced with ENERGY STAR®

Is this program free?

Qualifying Delmarva Power homeowners and renters can receive a new energy-efficient refrigerator for $50, payable after your application has been approved.

You heard us right…

Yes, renters whose building is a customer of Delmarva Power are eligible with the owner’s permission.





How long will it take to get my refrigerator?

It will take 1-4 weeks after you are approved and have paid the $50 fee, depending on demand and refrigerator availability. We will schedule the delivery up to one week in advance.

And if you’re concerned about how to get rid of your old refrigerator…

We pick it up when we deliver your new refrigerator and have it recycled

Which means…

No, part of Habitat for Humanity’s agreement with Energize Delaware is we remove the old refrigerator and have it recycled.  Removing them from the operation and replacing them with a new Energy Star-rated unit will save enough electricity to power 27 average-sized homes!
