Pella Earns the Prestigious ENERGY STAR® Award

Honored for enduring leadership

Pella Corporation was awarded the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award in 2015. Pella has been recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year eight times in recognition of our continued leadership in protecting our environment through superior energy efficiency achievements.

What is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award?

The ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Awards are given to a variety of organizations for their outstanding effort in product manufacturing that demonstrate a commitment to reducing our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change.


ENERGY STAR is the simple choice for energy efficiency achievements. For more than 20 years, people across America have looked to EPA’s ENERGY STAR program for guidance on how to save energy, save money, and protect the environment. Behind each blue label is a product, building, or home that is independently certified to use less energy and cause fewer of the emissions that contribute to climate change. Today, ENERGY STAR is the most widely recognized symbol for energy efficiency in the world, helping families and businesses save $300 billion on utility bills, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions by two billion metric tons since 1992.

What are the benefits of ENERGY STAR to consumers?

With ENERGY STAR, you know you're making the right decision — for your wallet, for your family, and for the environment — bringing these important benefits:

  • Lower Utility Bills
    By using less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating, ENERGY STAR certified homes deliver approximately 20% savings on annual utility bills. Over the 7 to 8 years that a typical family lives in a home, you can save thousands of dollars in maintenance cost.
  • Enhanced Performance
    In ENERGY STAR certified homes, comfort is ensured with consistent temperatures between and across rooms; indoor air quality is enhanced by reducing dust, pollen, bugs, and excessive humidity; and durability is improved with comprehensive water protection, windows that block damaging sunlight, and better grade equipment.
  • Environmental Protection
    The energy used in our homes often comes from the burning of fossil fuels at power plants. So, by using less energy to operate, ENERGY STAR certified homes help to prevent air pollution — an added benefit for today's environmentally — conscious consumer looking for "green" choices.
