- Refrigerators are bigger and have better features; yet they cost less to buy and operate and are more energy efficient. A modern refrigerator uses less energy than a 60-watt light bulb.
- Front-load washing machines can hold 20 percent more laundry than they did in the year 2000, yet they are 70 percent more efficient. Also, today's washers use 26 fewer gallons of water than 13 years ago, equaling 8,000 gallons saved per year.
- If newer dishwasher models with heightened standards were in every home in the U.S., it would save 270 billion gallons of water annually. Over the lifetime of the products, that's enough water to fill more than 40 million Olympic swimming pools.
- All the refrigerators, freezers, dishwashers and clothes washers shipped to consumers last year will save 111 trillion kWh during their lifetime. That's enough energy to power Washington, D.C. for 60 years.
