The Energy Star Program aims to entice consumers and businesses to make energy-efficient choices. The program’s thrust is to decrease energy costs and consumption, along with greenhouse gas emissions. The program brands products with the Energy Star label if they meet energy-efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy. The Energy Star rating can be given to various household products, homes, buildings and businesses that practice prudent energy management. If you are looking for a household appliance, for example, the Energy Star label on a refrigerator means it has been rated as energy efficient and is a minimal producer of greenhouse gas. All electric products with the Energy Star label should give you savings on your power bills.
