WHO: BGE and customers recycling their room air conditioners and dehumidifiers
WHAT: BGE will have a recycling drop-off location in Annapolis, Md., this Saturday for working room air conditioners and dehumidifiers. For each eligible appliance a BGE residential customer drops off for recycling, they will receive $25 from the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program®, up to two room air conditioning units and/or two dehumidifiers. Units must be in working condition to be eligible. Customers will receive a check for $25 in the mail approximately four weeks after the event. BGE representatives will be on hand to unload the eligible appliances from customers’ vehicles. More information is available at BGESmartEnergy.com/RecycleMyAC or by calling
WHEN: Sept. 26, 2015, 9 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., rain or shine
WHERE: Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis- Fahs House Annex 1920 N. Lawrence Ave. Annapolis, MD 21401
WHY: Older room air conditioning units and dehumidifiers are less energy efficient than newer models, so many customers are upgrading to ENERGY STAR® certified models that can use about 15 percent less energy than standard models and that saves on energy costs. Recycling old appliances helps prevent them from entering landfills, where they can release harmful toxins and greenhouse gases into the environment. By participating in this event, BGE customers are helping Maryland reduce energy use and waste. The event is part of the BGE Smart Energy Savers Program, a suite of programs that enable customers to control energy use, leading to more efficient use of electricity and lowering energy bills from where they otherwise would be. These programs support the EmPOWER Maryland Energy Efficiency Act.
