Energy Star Rating Fraud

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!

The Popular Mechanics article linked below describes the issuance of "Energy Star" approval for several fake products. This should be a warning to architects and engineers who are promising increased energy efficiency in structures if any portion of that claims is based on use of Energy Star ratings of specified appliances. As we work to form integrated teams we will have to look very carefully at the claims of energy efficiency, especially if the owner is being promised superior performance. Just a word of caution.
