- Achieving more than 160,000 megawatt hours of electricity, and 120,000 million cubic feet of natural gas, saved across its ENERGY STAR programs.
- Supporting the construction of more than 240 ENERGY STAR certified homes, a 73% year-over-year increase compared to 2020.
- Expanding ENERGY STAR builder participation in its program by 77%.
- Increasing the number of distributors participating in its commercial food service program by 50% and launching an in-store promotion in July with Restaurant Depot Midwest to incentivize ENERGY STAR certified fryers; after quickly selling out, participants worked together to overcome supply challenges and extend the promotion through the end of the year.
