In 2008, Americans, with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved $19 billion on their energy bills and avoided greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those of 29 million vehicles. To date, 940,00 new home and more than 6,000 office buildings, schools, hospitals, and public buildings have earned the ENERGY STAR.
