Harnessing Energy Data to Help Your Pocketbook and the Planet

How do Americans save money and protect the environment at the same time?

Millions of us gain those benefits when we decide to buy ENERGY STAR qualified products. In 2011 alone, Americans purchased about 280 million products with the ENERGY STAR label. Those qualified products – including appliances, heating and cooling equipment, consumer electronics, office equipment, lighting fixtures, and more – offer consumers energy savings of 10 to 65% relative to standard models, depending upon product type.
