Communism without calling it that.
Why is someone entitled lower price because they make less money?

Seems pretty straight forward if one is eligible, just call in and provide the information requested (not sure if they mail you a form), pay (money order?) and wait for delivery.

Because it satisfies what most would consider a basic need....it's not like its a discount on a big screen TV.

We got a fridge with this program.
Be prepared for 2-4 month of paper filling and waiting.
Also, student's grants don't count toward the total income.
We were over the 23,850$ limit, but still able to get the fridge.

What kind of question is that?

Might as well ask why are lower income families allowed to use a food bank? They aren't giving a Xbox One to low income families, they are trying to help lower their hydro bills.

Old fridges burn more electricity so therefore lower income people would save money on their Hydro bill. This is to help low income people replace their "electricity wasting fridge" and save money by having a more efficient fridge. I applaud this program for helping out low income families.

Yeah, much better than the RECYCLE FRIGO program where it used to give you only $50 back (now $30) for your old fridge

I thought refrigerator technology hasn't changed. A refrigerator from before 1996 isn't going to be significantly more efficient than one made today assuming it's running optimally and ice isn't blocking it. Right?
More efficient compressor and more accurate sensors, as well as better insulation would all contribute to improved efficiency.
