NOTE: This post is from 2008
I waited to post this until I actually got it so I would know it was true. And it came today! PG&E delivered and installed a Free brand new Whirlpool 21 cu. ft. Refrigerator and took my old one away!
THIS PROGRAM IS ONLY AVAILABLE TO PEOPLE LIVING IN CALIFORNIA AND ARE SERVED BY PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC (PG&E)
Here's the deal: It's through their program which provides which is for qualified low-income customers and includes (as of 2008): up top 10 free compact fluorescent light bulbs , weather stripping (they install!), insulation, etc! It's fantastic! The only catch with the refrigerator is that your current one must be at least 15 years old and your new one can be any color of the rainbow, so long as its white.
The associated CARE program offers 20% discount on your monthly PGE bill.
