The ENERGY STAR® windows program is a voluntary partnership between the U.S. government and the fenestration industry (NFRC) to promote sales of energy efficient windows and doors. The ENERGY STAR® program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy and U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help consumers identify products that meet criteria for energy efficiency and quality.

We are proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Energy in support of the Challenge Home. The DOE has challenged the homebuilding industry to build 220,000 high performance homes by 2012. Homes that qualify for the Challenge Home must achieve a 70 or better on the EnergySmart Home Scale (E-Scale), meaning that they will use at least 30% less energy than a typical new home built to code. Through industry partnerships and existing programs, the Challenge Home promotes the use of market-tested and cost-effective energy strategies. DOE's goal is that by 2030, new home buyers will have the option to buy a cost-effective, net-zero energy home anywhere in the United States.
