While new construction in Syracuse, NY is typically built to be energy efficient, there are many programs available to help owners of existing homes – no matter how old your home is.
Energy Star is a voluntary federal program created in 1992 by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under the authority of the Clean Air Act. It promotes better energy efficiency to help both individuals and businesses protect the climate and save on utility bills. To accomplish that goal, Energy Star was designed to develop and demonstrate the non–regulatory strategies and technologies that save energy while reducing air pollution.
Congress took a step further when it enacted the Energy Policy Act in 2005, establishing a voluntary program that would identify and promote products that are energy–efficient. This helps consumers understand what products will minimize energy use, while improving future energy security and reducing pollution. Much of that consumer education is achieved through voluntary Energy Star-compliant labeling of products and buildings, acknowledging those that meet the highest standards in energy efficiency. Energy Star has helped change the market for energy-efficient products and practices, and stimulated the economy with increased sales and new jobs. It now also offers considerable monetary incentives to people who are making the change to more efficient products.
