Energy Inspectors Earns Award for Protecting the Environment Through Energy Efficiency

LAS VEGAS, Feb. 28, 2007 -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has named Energy Inspectors as a 2007 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for its outstanding contribution to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through its work as a home energy rating company analyzing and testing the energy efficiency of homes. Energy Inspectors' accomplishments will be recognized at an awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. on March 21, 2007.

Energy Inspectors, an ENERGY STAR partner since 1999, is being honored for their work in qualifying new homes to earn the ENERGY STAR label certifying the whole house as energy efficient. Home energy raters provide the independent third party verification required for ENERGY STAR qualified homes.

Energy Inspectors, founded in Las Vegas, Nevada, has helped the Las Vegas residential market develop the most energy efficient housing stock in the nation. Energy Inspectors has since expanded its operations into California, Arizona, and Utah, and has labeled over 17,000 homes as energy efficient in 2006 alone. Energy Inspectors 2006 certifications have significantly reduced consumer spending on home energy usage, reduced the nation's dependency on foreign oil, and directly account for a reduction of over 68 Million pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions

"Through our work with regional production and custom home builders, and the EPA's ENERGY STAR program, we have seen a growing interest in energy efficient ENERGY STAR labeled homes," said Galo LeBron, CEO of Energy Inspectors. "More and more homebuyers are realizing that in buying a home that has earned the ENERGY STAR label, they are getting a better built, comfortable and more valuable home that lowers their utility bills while protecting the environment."

The 2007 Partner of the Year Awards are given to recognize those organizations that have contributed significantly to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by promoting energy-efficient homes in their communities. Award winners are selected from over 9,000 organizations that participate in the ENERGY STAR program. Energy Inspectors' accomplishments help homeowners enjoy quieter and more comfortable homes while saving money on utility bills. ENERGY STAR qualified new homes use substantially less energy for heating, cooling, and water heating - homeowners can expect to save about $300-$500 annually on their utility bills. Currently over 3,500 builders across all 50 states are constructing homes that meet EPA's strict guidelines for energy efficiency. More than 670,000 families now live in ENERGY STAR qualified homes.

Last year alone, Americans with the help of ENERGY STAR, saved $14 billion on their energy bills and reduced greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to that produced by 25 million vehicles.

"Partners like Energy Inspectors are essential to bringing ENERGY STAR qualified new homes to communities across the country," said Bill Wehrum, acting assistant administrator for EPA's Office of Air and Radiation. "With the knowledge and expertise that the nation's leading home energy rating companies provide, we are rapidly increasing the number of families that live in homes that offer the best in efficiency, comfort and durability-all while protecting the environment."
