ATLANTA, Georgia, Nov. 10 - /EWire/ -- Georgia Power invites customers to take advantage of its EarthCents Refrigerator Recycling Program to save money and energy.

Getting rid of an old refrigerator or freezer is an easy way to get started. Refrigerators manufactured before 1993 use 75 percent more energy than newer models and can cost owners as much as $150 a year in higher energy costs. "Refrigerator and freezer efficiency has improved dramatically in the last 20 years, but many older, inefficient units are still in use. Many times, the units are in unconditioned places like garages which can increase energy costs even more," says Angela Strickland, Georgia Power's director of energy efficiency. "This program encourages customers to remove these inefficient appliances. And, with our program, the old refrigerator or freezer is recycled in an environmentally safe manner." The Refrigerator Recycling Program is a part of Georgia Power's EarthCents initiative. EarthCents is Georgia Power's portfolio of energy efficiency programs created to help residential and business customers save money, use energy efficiently and help the environment. "Energy efficiency is a priority for Georgia Power. We offer many ways to help our customers save money and manage their energy use with our EarthCents programs," says Strickland.

However, if your goal is to learn about this kind of setup, you could get a kit from (say) Harbor Freight for a few hundred dollars, which will (barely) charge a car battery over a period of a couple weeks.

I think it's awesome that you are fouscing on newborns now. I wish I had gotten my sweet girl photographed when she was first born. I am wondering how old you are going to go? My little one is 10 months old (born in early November 2010) and I would love to have you photograph her. Is she too old now?
