ENERGY STAR on the Chopping Block
Dear Energy Efficiency Advocates,
Among many harmful proposed budget cuts, President Trump recently called for eliminating the popular ENERGY STAR program for high-efficiency appliances and other products. If approved by Congress, this would be a devastating setback for energy efficiency.
We are urging energy efficiency supporters to write your Members of Congress and voice your support for this program. It only takes a minute. Simply fill in your contact information below and click submit. You'll be taken to a page listing your U.S. Senators and Representative and a pre-drafted letter supporting ENERGY STAR. Feel free to edit the letter or leave it as-is, then click "Submit Message" and it will be sent to your lawmakers.
With more than 16,000 private and public participants, ENERGY STAR is the most successful public-private partnership in the world. It has cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2.7 billion metric tons since its inception in 1992 while saving American consumers $430 billion on utility bills.
As an energy efficiency advocate, you know that efficiency is the single best tool we have for reducing carbon emissions and other pollution. There has never been a more important time to get involved and help advance this important mission.
Thank you for your interest,
