What are energy star ratings in the US?



  1. 0 Votes

    Energy Star ratings are given to consumer products, materials, and even homes to denote energy efficiency. The ratings are given by the Environmental Protection Agency to products that meet government-approved standards for low and efficient use of energy. In order to determine if a product or brand should be given the Energy Star rating, the EPA uses six guidelines:

    -The product must provide savings on a nationwide level
    -The product must provide features useful to customers while remaining energy efficient
    -If the product costs more than competing products, the energy savings must make up for the higher price
    -The product cannot be patented by one company but be available for production by other technologies or manufacturers
    -The energy efficiency of the product must be tested
    -The product must be labled in a way that consumers can identify
