ENERGY STAR®: Using Promotion Activities and Financing Incentives to Increase Use of ENERGY STAR®-labeled Products in Nebraska

ENERGY STAR® (2005) $20,000

ENERGY STAR is a joint effort of the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy to identify the most energy efficient appliances, lighting, heating and cooling equipment as well as electronics and office equipment.

In July 2005, the agency received a $20,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to increase the use of ENERGY STAR products in the state through the use of promotion, marketing and coordinating the national ENERGY STAR effort with the agency's Dollar and Energy Saving Loans.

During this reporting period, work was completed on the redesign and formatting of loan application forms and a promotional brochure and printing of the forms and brochures was completed. In addition, a mailing to lenders was prepared and distributed summarizing the revised Dollar and Energy Saving Loan program standards and the inclusion of ENERGY STAR as the standard for pre-qualified products. This project was completed by June 2007.

ENERGY STAR® (2003) $10,000

In April 2003, the agency received a $10,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Energy to promote ENERGY STARŪ labeled products as part of the Nebraska Green Building Program's training and information activities to increase energy efficiency and environmental actions in new construction and remodeling in the residential sector.

During the reporting period, the agency promoted ENERGY STARŪ materials at workshops, home shows and local Parade of Homes events. $10,000 was spent. This project ended June 30, 2005.
