Frigidaire Named 2011 Energy Star Partner of the Year

March 29, 2011

The maker of Frigidaire brand appliances has been named an Energy Star Partner of the Year for Product Manufacturer by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The award recognizes the company for increasing their selection and delivery of Energy Star qualified appliances and helping to educate consumers about the Energy Star program.

“Today, EPA is recognizing Electrolux for their leadership in addressing climate change through energy efficiency,” said Elizabeth Craig, Acting Director of EPA’s Office of Atmospheric Programs. “Electrolux is producing and promoting energy-efficient Energy Star products that help American consumers join in the effort to increase our nation’s energy efficiency and reduce our emissions of greenhouse gases.  We look forward continuing to partner with these winners as they create the next generation of energy efficient products.”

In 2010, Frigidaire encouraged consumers to recycle old appliances and replace them with Energy-Star-qualified appliances through the Swap and Save program, which so far has saved U.S. consumers more than $240 million dollars in energy savings and more than 7.4 billion gallons of water.
Frigidaire’s new collections of kitchen and laundry appliances include Energy-Star-qualified appliances in every product category, where applicable, offering appliances that are from 10 to 80 percent more energy-efficient than non-Energy-Star-qualified appliances.
