My Web Times: Kinzinger advocates for Energy Star program
U.S. Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Channahon, whose district includes La Salle County, and U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko, D-New York, sent a letter to President Donald Trump in support of Energy Star, according to a joint press release.
More than 300 million Energy Star products were sold in 2015, according to the letter.
“For more than two decades, Energy Star has helped American families and small business owners invest with confidence in energy efficiency and spend less money on energy as a result,” Kinzinger said in a press statement. “This voluntary program gives businesses and manufacturers the option to differentiate their products and provides consumers with reliable information before they purchase major appliances or make home improvements.”
Additionally, more than 1,000 organizations and businesses sent a letter in support of Energy Star to the House Appropriations Committee last week.
