3. Energy-Saving Appliances

Sadi Carnot

ENERGY STAR is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It works to increase consumer energy awareness, and make available more energy-efficient technologies. By investing in these technologies, consumers can reduce their energy consumption, save money, and lessen the environmental impact of our energy usage.

A new energy-efficient refrigerator uses about half as much energy as a 10-year-old model. Replacing the older model with a more efficient one will save $25 to $50 each year in electricity costs. For more information about the ENERGY STAR program or the energy-efficient appliances available for your home or office see:
