Energy Star Partner of the Year Awards

Posted by Home Energy on March 29, 2007

On March 21, the EPA and the DOE honored businesses and organizations for their outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficiency at the 2007 ENERGY STAR Awards ceremony.

EPA introduced the Energy Star program in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, in partnership with DOE, the program offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money and help protect the environment for future generations.

In 2006 alone,  Energy Star helped Americans save $14 billion on their energy bills, as well as avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 25 million vehicles. To date, more than 2 billion Energy Star qualified products have been sold, and more than 725,000 new homes and 3,200 office buildings, schools, hospitals, and public buildings have earned the Energy Star label. Qualified products, homes, and buildings provide the quality, features, and personal comfort today's consumers expect.
