The US Environmental Projection Agency and the Department of Energy have identified ENERGY STAR© appliances as being the most energy efficient products in their category. Manufacturers participating in the ENERGY STAR© program can put an ENERGY STAR© label on their models that exceed the federal minimum efficiency standards for appliances by a specific percentage (usually 15 – 40%, depending on the type of appliance) or a specified energy consumption level. ENERGY STAR© appliances that are part of the built package include clothes washers, dishwashers and refrigerators.
