DOE Overestimating Impact of Energy Efficiency Standards on Appliance Prices | Articles | Distributed Energy

A little off-topic for this blog, but I wanted to share because I think energy efficiency is the cornerstone on which our energy future will be built.

This is a good news story.  Despite the good people at DOE not quite getting their estimates right, their energy efficiency standards for appliances have not only saved consumers money by reducing their utility bills, but have NOT driven up the cost of those appliances (in fact, they’ve dropped over time).  So, thanks to the DOE’s standards, we are using less energy (good for everyone) AND saving money (good for each individual).

A true win-win. Kudos to DOE and their Energy Star program!
