For the fifth straight year, Pentair has been recognized as a 2018 Energy Star Partner of the Year, earning a sustained excellence award for continued leadership in protecting the environment through its energy efficiency achievements.
On April 20, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will recognize the company in Washington, D.C., for manufacturing energy efficient pool pumps that earn the Energy Star designation. Pumps must be at least 30 to 72 per cent more efficient than standard pumps to earn this classification.
According to Pentair, its Eco Select® efficient pumps have helped U.S. consumers save $1.5 billion between 2005 and 2017, which translates into 14 billion kilowatt hours of energy saved. The kilowatt energy savings helped prevent the release of nine million tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of 18.9 billion car-driven miles.
The 2018 Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Awards are bestowed upon a diverse set of organizations that have demonstrated continued leadership in energy efficiency. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial, and public sectors.
