Energy Star Facilitates Bulk Purchasing

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has created a new website, Energy Star Quantity Quotes, to help those wishing to purchase Energy Star appliances and equipment in bulk. After registering with the website, purchasers can request price quotes from Energy Star partner companies; the website currently has supplier listings for light bulbs, lighting fixtures, and appliances such as clothes washers, refrigerators, and room air-conditioners. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which collaborates with DOE on the Energy Star program, hopes to add more categories of products, such as windows, doors, and skylights, although there is currently no timeline for this expansion. Quantity Quotes is online at www.quantityquotes.net.
