​ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary, market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency. Today, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Energy, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy and money, and to help protect the environment for future generations. 

Electric companies and more than 18,000 other organizations are ENERGY STAR partners committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, buildings, and businesses.
