Eversource announced today that it would extend incentives of up to $1,500 per unit to customers buying energy-efficient freezers to store COVID-19 vaccine.

Commercial customers are rapidly buying super-cold freezer to add to cold-storage capacity as part of the national campaign to distribute the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which must be kept at sub-zero temperatures. The company said it wants to encourage those customers to buy energy-efficient models and incentivize manufacturers to make the units more efficient.

“Some of our customers are focused on scaling up their cold storage as quickly as possible, and we’re here to make it easier and more affordable for them to do so with energy-efficient models that keep the vaccines safe while keeping our communities on track to meet carbon reduction goals,” Eversource Vice President of Energy Efficiency Tilak Subrahmanian said. 

All Energy Star-certified models from leading manufacturers including Thermo Fisher Scientific, PHC Corporation of America, Stirling Ultracold and Eppendorf are eligible for the incentives. A full list of certified cold-storage units can be found at
