How Products Earn the ENERGY STAR Label

ENERGY STAR, Green Energy, IDT Energy, Savings , ,

Certainly, most products want to have the ENERGY STAR label. This label means that they are more efficient, that they will save consumers money, and that they are better for the environment.  The EPA has established specific guidelines that products must meet in order to get the ENERGY STAR label.

These guidelines include key principles.  The product needs to show that it contributes significant energy savings to people throughout the country.  The products need to show that they can deliver great features and performance, and not just increased energy efficiency.  Assuming the product costs a bit more than a less-efficient counterpart, the efficient product needs to be able to show that purchasers will recover their investment with a decrease in their utility bill within a reasonable amount of time.

The energy consumption and performance has to be able to be measured and verified with testing.  Certainly, many companies such as IDT Energy want to save customers money on their bills, and the ENERGY STAR label is one of the many ways to do so.
