Best Buy + Energy Star saves Green $$$

Did you know  October is Energy Awareness Month?

Energy Awareness Month started in 1991, by the federal government making it easy for stores like Best Buy to offer special deals and promotions during the month of October. Today, the average home-owner spends $2,000 a year on their energy bill alone. ENERGY STAR® APPLIANCES make your home greener,  and save your green in your wallet too! Don’t take my word for it, see what you can save by comparing what you spend now with the easy savings calculator , HERE!

What is ENERGY STAR?

“ENERGY STAR is a U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) voluntary program that helps businesses and individuals save money and protect our climate through superior energy efficiency.The ENERGY STAR program was established by EPA in 1992, under the authority of the Clean Air Act Section 103(g). Section103(g) of the Clean Air Act directs the Administrator to “conduct a basic engineering research and technology program to develop, evaluate, and demonstrate non–regulatory strategies and technologies for reducing air pollution.” In 2005, Congress enacted the Energy Policy Act. Section 131 of the Act amends Section 324 (42 USC 6294) of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, and “established at the Department of Energy and the Environmental Protection Agency a voluntary program to identify and promote energy–efficient products and buildings in order to reduce energy consumption, improve energy security, and reduce pollution through voluntary labeling of or other forms of communication about products and buildings that meet the highest energy efficiency standards.”  Read more, http://www.energystar.gov/index.cfm?c=about.ab_index

 

How do I know I have an ENERGY STAR product?

Look for the logo above on various products at your local Best Buy store, they offer 2,300 unique ENERGY STAR certified products available in Best Buy stores and online . I was seriously blown away by the amount of products I found, I could shop for days! Energy efficiency is not just for light bulbs and appliances anymore either! ENERGY STAR can be found on computers , televisions, phones, and just about everything else you plug in! How much money could you save if every thing you plugged in was energy conscious? What could that do if we all did that?

What is better than saving month to month on your bills? How about a REBATE? Oh yeah, I found some amazing rebates that are available all over the U.S. some as high as $300.00 off your new ENERGY STAR product!  To find rebates available in your area, check out the Best Buy online rebate finder HERE.

We have been dying for a new smart TV here at our house because we love to stream and while looking through the options that Best Buy has, all I can say that, not only is prices ranged great but the choices are fantastic and when I went into the Best Buy Store in Boyton Beach here in Florida, the sales clerks were amazing!! I still have some choosing to do, hoping by Christmas we have a new TV though!!

Our narrowed choices so far, all ENERGY STAR certified! :) WHAT DO YOU THINK?

Do you shop at Best Buy? What do you like to buy there?
