Honored for enduring leadership


Pella Corporation was awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year award in 2014. Pella has been recognized as an ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year seven times in recognition of our commitment to delivering and promoting the use of energy-efficient products.

What is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award?

The 2014 Partner of the Year Awards are given to a variety of organizations to recognize their contributions to reducing greenhouse gas emissions through superior energy efficiency. Award winners are selected from the 16,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program.

“Pella Corporation is helping consumers save money and reduce harmful carbon pollution by producing energy-efficient ENERGY STAR products,” said EPA Deputy Administrator Bob Perciasepe. “This outstanding effort in product manufacturing demonstrates a commitment to reducing our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.”

What is ENERGY STAR?

  • ENERGY STAR was introduced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in 1992 as a voluntary market-based partnership to reduce greenhouse gas emissions through increased energy efficiency.
  • Today, ENERGY STAR offers businesses and consumers energy-efficient solutions to save energy, money, and help protect the environment for future generations.
  • 16,000 organizations are ENERGY STAR partners committed to improving the energy efficiency of products, homes, and buildings.

ENERGY STAR and Pella

  • Pella has partnered with ENERGY STAR since 1999.
  • Pella windows and doors offer the energy-efficient options that will meet or exceed ENERGY STAR guidelines in all 50 states.
  • Pella's commitment to ENERGY STAR extends to product design, testing, consumer education, sales, marketing, public outreach, product labeling, specification development, and training.

What are the benefits of ENERGY STAR to consumers?

  • Through 2013, with help from ENERGY STAR, American families and businesses have saved $297 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 2.1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Installing ENERGY STAR qualified windows and doors lowers energy bills and saves you money. With more efficient windows, you also use less energy, which reduces greenhouse gas emissions from power plants. Feel your carbon footprint shrinking?

ENERGY STAR matters

  • As of December 2012, families and businesses have realized estimated savings of more than $239 billion on utility bills and prevented more than 1.9 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the past two decades. The interplay of government, business, and market forces brought together through ENERGY STAR has changed the energy efficiency landscape.
  • By choosing ENERGY STAR qualified products, the typical household can save $146 to $501 per year – while improving home comfort and helping the environment.**

**The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy. Savings estimates based on an even mix of one- and two-story detached homes of 1700 or 2600 sq. ft. respectively, with 15% of their floor space in windows that are equally distributed across compass directions. Heating and cooling systems are modeled as either natural gas heat with electric air conditioning or electric heat pump, according to the regional breakdown reported in the Energy Information Administration's (EIA) 2005 Residential Energy Consumption Survey. Estimates use the EIA's 2006 average natural gas prices and the 2007 electricity prices. Actual savings will vary by local climatic conditions, utility rates, and individual home characteristics.
