ENERGY STAR certification demonstrates to potential customers that the product not only passes the minimum standards in OG-300, but it also meets performance criteria. The warranty requirements demonstrate that the product is well-supported by the manufacturer. Certification holders have the right to display the well-recognized ENERGY STAR label (in accordance with program brand requirements).
The ENERGY STAR program is specified and recognized throughout North America. Several incentive programs require ENERGY STAR certification to qualify for rebates, and the use of ENERGY STAR certified products is required in some federal contracts. See the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency® (DSIRE) for the latest information on incentives, rebates and tax credits.
