GE Helps Clients Save Potential 20% on Electricity
The kitchen accounts for about 25% of electricity use in the average U.S. household and as a result GE‘s ecomaginationSM kitchen package can help reduce electricity consumption in the average U.S. kitchen by as much as 20% making it an easy solution for builders.
Are consumers interested in an energy-efficient kitchen? Many support the need to reduce home energy use through more efficient appliances. According to a recent survey, 78% of Americans think it is “very beneficial” for appliances to become more energy efficient.
Now GE makes it easy to assemble a kitchen full of energy-efficient appliances.
GE’s new “ecomaginationSM” suite of appliances can help reduce electricity consumption in the average U.S. kitchen by up to 20% (compared to standard appliances). Ecomagination kitchens include:
• GE’s double-oven electric ranges: If consumers use the smaller oven 50% of the time, they can reduce energy use by up to 25% compared to GE’s 5.3 cubic foot single oven. The double wall ovens offer two ovens in the same space as one, and are great for remodels.
• GE’s over-the-range microwave ovens with Power Saver feature: When activated, the Power Saver feature reduces energy lost during standby mode. Regular use of the Power Saver button can reduce annual microwave energy consumption by more than 20%.
• GE’s ENERGY STAR-qualified dishwashers: GE’s ENERGY STAR-qualified dishwashers can reduce energy and water use by approximately 10% over non-qualified dishwashers.
• GE’s ENERGY STAR-qualified refrigerators: ENERGY STAR refrigerators can reduce energy use by 20% compared to non-qualified refrigerators.
