Con Ed offers to turn old appliances into cold cash

Con Edison is offering consumers the chance to turn their old appliances into cold, hard cash while learning about the benefits of energy-efficient technology at the same time.

For consumers looking to upgrade from an old air conditioner or refrigerator to an energy-efficient model, the Con Edison Green Team will visit their house and pick up their old appliances in exchange for cash.

Customers can receive $30 for their trade-in, with an additional $35 paid out if both a refrigerator and air conditioner are picked up at the same time.

Con Edison says it has already paid more than $45,000 to New Yorkers under the program.
