Home Performance with ENERGY STAR
About Home Performance with ENERGY STAR
The goal of Home Performance with ENERGY STAR is to help homeowners improve the efficiency and comfort of their homes using a comprehensive, whole-house approach, while helping to protect the environment. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) began to administer the Home Performance with ENERGY STAR Program in October 2011 and works in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to support local Sponsors.
In 2012, Home Performance with ENERGY STAR reached over 275,000 completed projects. Thanks to local Sponsors' efforts promoting energy efficiency in their local communities and contractor support, we were able to offer more than 275,000 homeowners solutions to their energy efficiency problems!
