Some statistics on how well the Energy Star program has worked during the 16 years since its inception until the year 2008.

•    With the help of Energy Star, about $18 billion was saved by Americans on their utility bills.
•    Americans reduced greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere by the equivalent of 29 million cars.
•    Since 2002 when the Green Power Partnership program began over 1,000 partners agreed to purchase over 16 billion kilowatt-hours of green power every year.
•    Since 2002 when the Combined Heat and Power Partnership program launched, over 260 partners installed more than 4,700 megawatts of new combined heat and power.
•    The Environmental Protection Agency’s corporate commitment program known as Climate Leaders grew by 60% in the year 2008 to 250 participants.
