ENERGY STAR<sup>®</sup>

More about Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR®

Change the World, Start with ENERGY STAR® is a national campaign encouraging all Americans to join with millions of others and take small individual steps, like changing a light bulb, to make a big difference in the fight against global warming.

How does ENERGY STAR® help the environment?

Did you know that your house can pollute twice as much as your car? That's right, twice as much. That's because every time we flick on a light switch, run a dishwasher, or turn on a TV, we're using energy. Most energy comes from power plants that burn fossil fuels, which, when burned, release greenhouse gases into the air. So, it's simple! The more energy we save by using ENERGY STAR® products and adopting energy-saving practices in our homes, the more air pollution we can prevent.

What qualifies a product as ENERGY STAR®?

ENERGY STAR®-qualified bulbs are the same or better than standard bulbs, only they use less energy. When you choose a GE Lighting product that has earned the ENERGY STAR® label, you can trust that it meets strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the Department of Energy.
