ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping us all save money and
protect the environment through energy efficient products and practices.
Results are already adding up. Americans, with the help of ENERGY

emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars — all while saving
nearly $18 billion on their utility bills.
Energy efficient choices can save families about a third on their

EPA provides an innovative energy performance rating system which
businesses have already used for more than 200,000 buildings across the
country. EPA also recognizes top performing buildings with the ENERGY
