Each year, ENERGY STAR saves American families more than $35 billion in energy costs, achieves 330 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emission reductions (5% of the nation’s total emissions), and supports more than 725,000 domestic jobs. In honor of ENERGY STAR Day that took place on Oct. 26, AASHE called on its community members to send letters to their representatives on how important it is to fully fund ENERGY STAR.
