Since 2002, NAILD has participated in the ENERGY STAR® program, a joint initiative of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE). Partnership is voluntary and partners include manufacturers, distributors, lighting showrooms and energy-efficiency program implementers such as utilities and states.
NAILD members automatically become ENERGY STAR® Partners under the NAILD ENERGY STAR membership and can use the USEPA/DOE Energy Star logo on business communications to promote their company and products. ENERGY STAR partners become key players in their community and to their customers by providing information on lighting trends and by stocking, promoting and selling ENERGY STAR certified products. Specialized lighting distributors also serve as a valuable resource in providing ENERGY STAR certified products for new construction and building upgrades. ENERGY STAR partners are able to use the ENERGY STAR partner mark to promote their company and products, subject to the ENERGY STAR Identity Guidelines, which are available on the ENERGY STAR web site.
ENERGY STAR Partners are listed on the ENERGY STAR website and on the ENERGY STAR Resource page for builders, government and utility partners.
