Last year alone, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved $18 billion on their utility bills, with corresponding reductions in pollution associated with energy consumption. Products, homes and buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR prevent emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency specifications set by the EPA.
