Obama releases the biggest energy efficiency rule in US history

The US Energy Department has just released a standard governing commercial air conditioners and furnaces: the largest energy-saving standard in history will save more energy than any other standard issued by the Department to date.

Heating and cooling consumes a gigantic amount of energy across America –  they keep us comfortable in large buildings.  The new standard will save $ 167 billion in costs for businesses over the life of the standard, and save 885 million tons of carbon dioxide emissions.

These Energy Department standards require ever improving levels of energy efficiency for dishwashers, refrigerators, and more.
