Save the EPA's 'Energy Star' Program

Energy Star

An enormous amount of energy is wasted in the United States every day -- with nearly 60 percent of energy sourced for electricity lost before it reaches homes, and even more wasted through leaks, inefficiencies and mismanagement. All that lost energy adds up and is dangerously contributing to the climate crisis.

That's why we must defend energy efficiency programs like the EPA's Energy Star that help save energy and money. Right now Trump wants to slash these federal programs from the 2018 budget, despite their success and popularity.

Energy Star has reduced greenhouse gas emissions by more than 2.7 billion metric tons over the past 25 years by providing tools and information to help people choose between different types of appliances, electronics, lighting and other products to make their houses and other buildings more efficient.

With your help we'll keep it that way -- and the United States will curb its waste, reduce its energy needs, and transition to a just, clean, wildlife-friendly energy system.

Using the form on this page, tell your representative in Congress to keep these programs fully funded to reduce energy waste.

Please take action by Feb. 19, 2018.
