Eaton Lighting announced today it received the ENERGY STAR® 2019 Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for the fifth consecutive year for continued leadership and superior contributions to ENERGY STAR.
Eaton Lighting offered millions of configurable ENERGY STAR-certified models in 2018, an over 400 percent increase from the previous year. The company also added the HALO Home™ Smart Lighting System to its roster of ENERGY STAR-certified products in 2018, broadening the reach of ENERGY STAR products available to the connected home consumer. This smart lighting system offers a convenient way to securely connect, automate and control a home’s lights in one room or an entire home –no internet or hub required, greatly reducing upfront costs compared to other systems on the market.
“Homeowners are increasingly adopting connected lighting products for enhanced functionality, security, safety and even improved health and wellness,” said Kraig Kasler, president, Eaton Lighting. “We’re addressing this need in the market by focusing our efforts on developing ENERGY STAR-certified products that can provide homeowners ease of functionality and use, like our HALO Home Smart Lighting System. We’re honored to receive a notable Partner of the Year award from ENERGY STAR for the fifth year in a row.”
The highest honor among ENERGY STAR Awards is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award. EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition. Winners hail from small, family-owned businesses to Fortune 500 organizations – representing energy-efficient products, services, new homes, and buildings in the commercial, industrial and public sectors.
Eaton Lighting is also committed to advancing the understanding and availability of energy-efficient products. In 2018, Eaton reached over 2.6 million consumers through the support of ENERGY STAR Light the Moment, ENERGY STAR Day and Earth Day campaigns. Eaton worked closely with retail partners to offer in-store ENERGY STAR-certified product for ENERGY STAR Day and throughout October and November. These promotions enabled and encouraged smart consumer purchases of the HALO Home products. Additionally, as part of the company’s Earth Day initiatives, Eaton partnered with local elementary schools to teach students about the benefits of LED lighting.
“I applaud the 2019 ENERGY STAR Award Winners,” said EPA Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation Bill Wehrum. “Their innovation and leadership enhance America’s economic competitiveness. Reducing costly energy waste improves air quality and public health while protecting the environment.”
Eaton Lighting was recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy for its accomplishments at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. on April 11, 2019.
