Do you think the energy star program needs to be overhauled?

    The Energy Star program has been proven effective as a marketing tool to get people to buy more efficient appliances. Its effectiveness as a label has also inspired manufacturers to produce ever more efficient appliances. Since the Energy Star program is already effective, there is no need to revamp it. Federal standards to tighten what qualifies as an Energy Star product could enhance energy efficiency even further, but I wouldn’t call that an overhaul.

    The Energy Star program is a great way to get people to buy more efficient items, but needs to be overhauled. It is outdated as it began in 1992. The program needs more teeth and the ability to force companies to make their products more efficient. Right now, the program is mainly voluntary.
