About ENERGY STAR
ENERGY STAR was introduced by EPA in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency. Today, the ENERGY STAR label can be found on more than 60 different kinds of products as well as new homes and buildings. Products that have earned the ENERGY STAR designa tion prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency specifications set by the government. In 2009 alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, prevented 45 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions-equivalent to the annual emissions from 30 million vehicles-and saved nearly $17 billion on their utility bills.
