Working Refrigerator!

Oldest Refrigerator Contest
Okay, maybe it won't be the "world's oldest working refrigerator," but Choptank Electric Cooperative is looking for the oldest working refrigerator on our system.

In conjunction with the Maryland Energy Administration and the U.S. Department of Energy appliance rebate program, Choptank is promoting ENERGY STAR as the leading symbol with regard to energy efficiency. Appliances that display the ENERGY STAR logo have been recognized by the U.S. Department of Energy as those that consume less energy and provide energy savings over the life of the appliance.

In this contest, Choptank will replace the oldest working refrigerator on our system with a brand new, similar sized ENERGY STAR rated refrigerator.

To enter the contest, your refrigerator must be "working," which means it must be plugged into the outlet in your kitchen, in good working condition and used to keep food, beverages or other perishables on a daily basis. It must be older than 1980 and the date will be verified using the manufacturer, model number, serial number and size/capacity listed on the label on the refrigerator, submitted by the contestant (see example below). The contest will end June 30, 2010. The winner will receive a brand new, ENERGY STAR refrigerator delivered and installed at their home.

Choptank will verify the information submitted by having a representative visit your home and check all of the information presented. The old refrigerator will be removed and becomes the property of Choptank Electric Cooperative to be displayed at various locations and events promoting energy management, conservation and ENERGY STAR products.

You may enter by filling out and sending the form below or you may enter by contacting Thomas S. Tyndall, Energy Program Coordinator, with the information at or call toll free 1-877-892-0001, ext. 8633. Use the example below when recording the needed information.
