Georgia Power's "slot machine fridge" won "Judges Choice" in a nationwide call for old refrigerators that have been recycled and converted to creative works of art. The contest was held in the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., during the Department of Energy's Energy Star The Art of Recycling exhibition. It encouraged those who own an old refrigerator to save money, energy, and help the environment by recycling old refrigerators and buying a new Energy Star refrigerator.

Georgia Power's "slot machine fridge" was selected among artwork submitted by students, institutions, utility companies, private organizations, and individual artists across the United States. Georgia Power is the largest subsidiary of Southern Company, one of the nation's largest generators of electricity.

Georgia Power predicts its customers have approximately 235,000 secondary refrigerators more than 10 years old. Most of these secondary refrigerators are old, inefficient models and typically use 75% more energy than newer Energy Star models. It said that if every household recycled that
second refrigerator, the annual energy savings would be as much as 250 million kilowatt-hours each year.
