but Choptank Electric Cooperative is looking for the oldest working
refrigerator on our system.

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.
