Pentair has recently been awarded the 2020 Energy Star Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for leadership in manufacturing energy-efficient pool pumps, marking the seventh year the company has received recognition for its energy efficient achievements.
Pentair has been an Energy Star partner since 2013, earning the US government backed symbol of energy efficiency. The company says that since 2005, its Energy Star pool pumps have helped US consumers save $2.4 billion in operating costs, which translates into 22 billion kWh of energy saved. The kilowatt energy savings have helped prevent the release of 17.1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide since 2007.
De’Mon Wiggins, VP, Pentair Pool, said: “More than a decade ago, Pentair introduced variable speed technology to the pool industry. Today, we remain equally dedicated to delivering smart, sustainable water solutions.”
From July 2021, pool equipment makers will be required to meet the US Department of Energy’s new energy conservation standards for dedicated-purpose pool pumps. Pentair’s Energy Star-certified variable speed pumps currently meet this standard.
