Appliance Recycling Centers of America (ARCA) Launches Santee Cooper’s
Refrigerator Rebate Program

MINNEAPOLIS, Oct. 21 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Appliance Recycling Centers of
America, Inc. (Nasdaq: ARCI) today announced that it is the official turnkey
provider for Santee Cooper’s Refrigerator Rebate Program.  ARCA will provide
the refrigerator recycling services, as well as issue ENERGY STAR® rebates,
for the utility’s residential and commercial electric customers in South
Carolina who participate in the energy efficiency program. The program is
scheduled to run for three (3) years.
Through the program, participating utility customers are eligible for a
variety of incentives that promote the use of energy efficient refrigerators.
Santee Cooper’s customers are offered a $40 rebate towards the purchase of a
new ENERGY STAR refrigerator. Customers receive a $75 rebate when they
purchase a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator and recycle their old, energy-hogging
refrigerator. Customers who purchase a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator can
recycle two (2) of their old, working refrigerators, totaling a rebate of
$110. Additionally, customers who turn in an operating but energy inefficient
refrigerator without the purchase of a new ENERGY STAR unit will be eligible
for a $35 incentive check.
Santee Cooper is South Carolina’s state-owned electric and water utility, and
the state’s largest power producer, supplying electricity directly or
indirectly to more than 2 million South Carolinians.
ARCA currently provides services for 142 other electric utilities in the U.S.
and Canada.
Edward R. (Jack) Cameron, President and Chief Executive Officer, said:  “We
are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to provide turnkey appliance
recycling services, including rebate processing, for this energy efficiency
program sponsored by Santee Cooper. By capitalizing on ARCA’s extensive
experience in environmentally sound appliance recycling, Santee Cooper will
reduce residential electricity demand, help lower their customers’ energy
bills and reduce costs normally associated with the purchase of a new, energy
efficient appliance.”
