An ASAP and ACEEE White Paper

National product standards apply to many of the most common devices that consume energy and water, assuring consumers and businesses that their purchases will meet a minimum level of efficiency performance. This white paper provides up-to-date estimates of the benefits of national efficiency standards for consumers and businesses in each state and for the United States as a whole.

The average American family saved nearly $500 on utility bills in 2015 due to efficiency standards for appliances, lighting, and plumbing products. Average household savings, by state, ranged from 11% to 27% of total consumer utility bills, with a national average of 16%. Businesses also saved. Total business utility bill savings from standards reached nearly $23 billion in 2015. Business energy bill savings equaled 8% of total business spending on electricity and natural gas. Many standards also save water: national water savings in 2015 reached 1.5 trillion gallons, enough to meet the needs of all the households in Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, and Colorado combined.
