Duke Energy tore apart an old refrigerator Thursday... and not just because someone thought destruction sounded fun. The demonstration highlights Duke's appliance recycling program.
Duke Energy is farming out its gas meter and line inspections. Spokeswoman Sally Thelen says that means someone new could be knocking on your door. She says customers shouldn't be alarmed to see a contractor show up to read and inspect meters.
So you've got a refrigerator you suspect Methuselah might have used at some point in his life? Then utilities across the state of Ohio, including Duke, want to hear from you. They've kicked off Ohio's Oldest Refrigerator contest and say they'll pay a $1,250 prize for the state's most ancient fridge or freezer.
