Refrigerator Replacement

Please be advised, We are currently experiencing refrigerator delivery delays due to supply chain shortages. The estimated time for delivery is two-three months.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your patience.

Our Refrigerator rebate program is still active.  If you purchase a new ENERGY STAR refrigerator, you can receive a rebate of $75. Please see our Energy Efficiency Rebate program for details.

The City of Colton electric department offers a Residential Refrigerator Replacement program for qualified customers. The program offers customers a low-cost replacement for their old inefficient refrigerator. The customer will make 12 payments of $20 a month for 12 consecutive months for a total of $240. The customer will be charged the monthly fee of $20 directly on their utility bill.

To qualify, you must be a resident in the City of Colton with an active electric service account for at least 12 consecutive months. You must also have a refrigerator that is old and inefficient to qualify for a replacement.

The program replaces old inefficient units with brand new energy-efficient refrigerators. The replacement model is a basic white 18 cubic ft. GE (models subject to change without notice).

For more information on the program, please contact Energy Services at 909-370-6139, or apply online.
