Refrigerators – Preparing a variety of dishes the night before and storing them in an ENERGY STAR certified refrigerator will make it easier to keep everything cool and enjoy time with friends and family instead of minding the stove. It will also save you time, energy, and more than $300 over five years.

Summer is the best time for get-togethers with family and friends.

And you’ll be doing your part to help the environment.
