Energy Star Appliances

By purchasing appliances that have earned the Energy Star you can save $75 a year in energy costs, while saving the environment. You may also qualify for a $10 bill credit from South River EMC. This bill credit is offered on the purchase of a new Energy Star qualified electric clothes washer, clothes dryer, refrigerator or dehumidifier.


Save Energy, Save Money

Appliances have two costs: what it costs to purchase and what it costs to run the appliance. Energy Star certified appliances incorporate advanced technologies that use 10–50 percent less energy and water than standard models. Yes, Energy Star certified appliances are more costly than standard models, however the money you save on your utility bills can more than make up for the difference in price.

For top performance look for appliances that have earned the Energy Star. This mark may appear on the appliance, the packaging or the  EnergyGuide label.
