The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Energy (DOE) announced today that Lowe's Companies, Inc. has received the 2007 Excellence in Energy Star Promotion Award for its contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by marketing and promoting energy-efficient products and solutions.

This is the fifth consecutive year the company has been recognized for its efforts in championing energy-efficient products and consumer education. Lowe's will be recognized by the DOE and EPA at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C., on March 21.

Lowe's received the award for its comprehensive fall program promoting products that earn the Energy Star label by meeting EPA and DOE's guidelines for energy efficiency. The month-long program was highlighted by a nationwide "Save Energy, Save Money" education day on Sept. 30, during which Lowe's stores offered free energy-saving tips and demonstrations.

Lowe's continued helping consumers throughout October's National Energy Awareness Month by hosting free weekly "How-To" clinics offering homeowners practical energy efficiency tips. The clinics promoted the use of energy-efficient products and educated consumers on the value of the Energy Star program.
