Find “Most Efficient” Products with Newest Energy Star Label
The Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy have teamed up to recognize the cream of the crop in energy-efficient appliances. These top-rated products will stand out from other Energy Star appliances with a new, “Most Efficient” label. The designation will not only help consumers save money and reduce the amount of pollution they generate, but should also spur manufacturers to innovate to produce the most energy-efficient appliances they can.
DOE and EPA have identified Most Efficient 2011 products among televisions, clothes washers, and heating and cooling equipment. Refrigerators are coming soon. More product categories will be added in 2012.
