What is ENERGY STAR Certification?
EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification identifies buildings that perform in the top 25 percent of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency and that meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. On average, commercial buildings that earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR certification use 35 percent less energy than typical buildings and also emit 35 percent less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
