The Simple Choice is ENERGY STAR

EPA's ENERGY STAR Program was created to help identify the best ways to save energy. The little blue label says this product, this home, this building or factory is doing the right things to save. And energystar.gov offers the most comprehensive resource available for energy efficiency advice and information.

Every blue label tells a story

You can't see energy efficiency. It takes testing and expert analysis. A third party certification process makes sure anything that earns the blue label meets the highest standards. Even an LED bulb must pass dozens of checks to assure quality, performance, and efficiency. All you have to do is look for the ENERGY STAR.

America saves a million times every day

ENERGY STAR drives energy efficiency all across America. Products in more than 70 categories earn the label. More than 1.6 million homes are ENERGY STAR certified. And more than 25,000 buildings have earned certification. One million times every day, people choose ENERGY STAR to help them save.
