ecobee Honored by EPA and U.S. Department of Energy as 2021 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year
Prestigious award honors ecobee’s commitment to energy efficient products and solutions.
TORONTO – April 13, 2021 – ecobee is proud to announce it has received the 2021 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year Award by the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. This award recognizes ecobee’s continued leadership around planet-positive smart home innovations, including the industry-leading ecobee SmartThermostat, and intelligent software platform, eco+, designed to improve energy efficiency, benefiting both consumers and the planet.
ecobee’s mission is to improve everyday life while creating a more sustainable world. Since the company’s inception, ecobee has demonstrated its dedication to energy efficiency by finding innovative ways to reduce carbon emissions, designing products to stay in homes and out of landfills (the average lifespan of an ecobee thermostat is 4x longer than a smartphone), and improving access to sustainable products for families across North America.
“This notable recognition underscores our commitment to developing planet-positive products and solutions that offer easier ways to make an impact,” said Chris Carradine, EVP of ecobee Energy. “Whether it’s helping our customers effortlessly save energy through eco+, or active participation in programs that reduce the load on the grid. ecobee is constantly innovating to ensure our products are designed for our customers and their families, but made for the planet.”
ecobee smart thermostats have delivered 17.6 TWh of energy savings to date, which is the annual equivalent of saving enough energy to take all the homes in Las Vegas off the grid for a year, taking 2.7 million cars off the road for a year, and keeping 13.7 million tons of CO2 out of the atmosphere. ecobee has also improved access to energy efficient products by subsidizing tens of thousands of thermostats through the company’s Income Qualified program and partnerships with local housing organizations, cities and NGOs to donate devices to community housing projects.
“ENERGY STAR award-winning partners are showing the world that delivering real climate solutions makes good business sense and promotes job growth,” said EPA Administrator Michael S. Regan. “Many of them have been doing it for years, inspiring all of us who are committed to tackling the climate crisis and leading the way to a clean energy economy.”
Each year, the ENERGY STAR program honors a group of businesses and organizations that have made outstanding contributions to protecting the environment through superior energy achievements. Winners are selected from a network of thousands of ENERGY STAR partners.
