Every April 22nd, Earth Day is celebrated by more than 1 billion people 190 countries as a day of action to change human behavior and focus on environmental issues that the world faces.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, electricity use is an integral part of each person’s environmental footprint. Producing and using electricity more efficiently reduces both the amount of fuel needed to generate electricity and the amount of greenhouse gases and other air pollution emitted as a result.
Population growth and modern living standards have increased energy demand. Across the U.S., we’ve seen an increase in the average home size, more oversized vehicles being driven more miles and the rapid growth of energy-consuming devices. In fact, between 1970 and 2010, U.S. economic output had expanded more than three times – but energy demand grew only 50%, due in large part to investments in energy efficiency for homes, appliances, and vehicles.
What Is ENERGY STAR®
As a business, saving energy is important, not just for your monthly hydro bill but for the environment too. ENERGY STAR® is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing credible and unbiased information that consumers can use to make well-informed decisions. Look for ENERGY STAR® certified products on MicroFridge’s website. They’re labeled with the ENERGY STAR® certified badge.
Since 1992, ENERGY STAR® and its partners have helped save $450 billion in energy costs, saved 5 trillion kilowatt-hours of electricity, and eliminated 4 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas, according to the ENERGY STAR® website. In addition, the program ensures that each product that earns the label is independently certified to deliver the efficient performance and savings advertised.
