Certain GE dishwashers, such as the Profile series, are very energy efficient, as they are ENERGY STAR certified.To receive ENERGY STAR certification, an appliance must be 41 percent more efficient than the federal standard. Over the life of an ENERGY STAR-certified dishwasher, the savings are approximately $120.
The ENERGY STAR label lets consumers know that they are reducing greenhouse gas emissions, while purchasing a product that saves money on energy costs without sacrificing quality. The Environmental Protection Agency establishes the guidelines that appliance manufacturers such as GE must meet to claim the label. All appliances in this category must contribute significant energy savings nationwide to qualify.
