|Why choose Energy Star?|
Energy star®-qualified products are the recognized standard in energy efficiency, as set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy. When you reduce your electricity usage, you not only save money, you reduce emissions associated with electricity production. You can further reduce electricity usage and its environmental impacts by enabling power management or turning off your product when it is not in use for extended periods of time, particularly at night and over weekends.

Across eight categories and multiple criteria (including whether a product meets Energy Star requirements), the EPEAT tool makes it easy for customers to evaluate the lifecycle implications of a product.
