EPA's Market Share for ENERGY STAR Qualified Homes Reaches 25%
EPA announced that 25% of all single-family homes built nationally in 2010 earned EPA’s ENERGY STAR, up from 21% in 2009. In partnership with its stakeholders, EPA continues to help American home buyers invest in high performing homes that save money on their utility bills and help protect the environment. Since 1995 approximately 1.2 million new homes have earned EPA's ENERGY STAR, representing savings of nearly $350 million on utility bills while avoiding greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more than 450,000 vehicles.
