The U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency awarded GE Consumer & Industrial the Sustained Excellence Award for its commitment to creating high-performance household appliances and lighting products that help reduce energy spending and protect the environment. GE will be officially recognized at a March 21 ceremony in Washington D.C. This is the third year GE has been recognized as an Energy Star Partner of the Year.

"Partners like GE are national leaders in energy efficiency," said Kathleen Hogan, director of EPA's Climate Protection Partnerships Division. "The Energy Star Sustained Excellence winners are true models for improving energy efficiency across the country. They have shown year after year that energy efficiency is good for business and helps consumers save important resources, all while protecting the environment."

GE's support of the Energy Star program includes consumer and customer education and participation in national and regional events that promote Energy Star products to consumers, customers and homebuilders.

"GE's energy-efficient products also play a key role in our ecomagination(SM) initiative," said James P. Campbell, president and CEO of GE Consumer & Industrial. "This initiative, which launched in 2005, focuses on harnessing GE's imagination to bring new technologies to market that help solve challenges like reducing green house gas emissions and stretching increasingly limited energy resources."

Investment in Energy Efficient Technology

From 2002 through 2005, GE invested more than U.S. $350 million to develop and bring to market high-efficiency appliances products. Appliances throughout the GE Monogram, GE Profile, GE, and Hotpoint brands have qualified, including clothes washers, refrigerators, dishwashers, room air-conditioners, dehumidifiers, and water products. In 2005 alone, GE says it invested approximately $60.4 million in Energy Star appliance models. The result was 164 new Energy Star appliance products, an increase of 26.2 percent over 2004.
