What Is Energy Star? 

ENERGY STAR is the government-backed symbol for energy efficiency, providing simple, credible, and unbiased information that consumers and businesses rely on to make well-informed decisions. Thousands of local and nationwide organizations rely on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Partnership for energy-efficient and cost-saving solutions.

Since 1992, ENERGY STAR and its partners have helped American families and businesses avoid more than $500 billion in energy costs and achieve more than 4 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas reductions.1


According to the EPA, a pool pump is a home’s second-largest energy user. With an estimated 8.5 million residential pools and 200,000 new ones built annually, there is a significant opportunity for energy savings 2

In 2021, Pentair helped U.S. consumers save 932 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of energy from our energy-efficient pool pumps, resulting in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions reductions of 441,224 tons of CO2, saving $102.5 million in energy costs. Since 2005, Pentair’s ENERGY STAR pool pumps have been responsible for a cumulative 32.6 billion kWh of energy savings, the reduction of 15.4 million tons of CO2 emissions, and $3.6 billion in operating cost savings for consumers. 3
