Raising the Bar on Efficient Appliances

WashersDoing chores with the help of major appliances is standard in many households. The convenience of having a washer, dryer, dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, and air-conditioning unit could seem to outweigh the consequences of using so much energy.

However, a recent agreement between major appliance manufacturers and pro-efficiency groups will make energy-efficient home appliances the norm. Higher industry standards will mean greater access to green appliances, saving us energy and money.

If adopted, this agreement could cut enough carbon emissions over 25 years to equal taking 100 million cars off the road for a year.
