Energy Star Shines

December 9, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] A report released in late November by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) shows that Americans have achieved significant energy and environmental benefits through the Energy Star program and other voluntary programs. Last year alone, Americans saved more than 80 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity and avoided using 10,000 megawatts of peak power, the amount of energy required to power more than 10 million U.S. homes. Through voluntary efforts, Americans have reduced greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent to 38 million metric tons of carbon, which is the same as taking more than 25 million cars off the nation’s roads.
