Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is ENERGY STAR?
A: ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions. Thousands of industrial, commercial, utility, state, and local organizations-including more than 40 percent of the Fortune 500® rely on their partnership with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency(EPA) to deliver cost-saving energy efficiency solutions.
ENERGY STAR is the simple choice for energy efficiency, making it easy for consumers and businesses to purchase products that help save them money and protect the environment. EPA ensures that each product that earns the label is independently certified to deliver the quality, performance, and savings that consumers have come to expect.
