Title:
TopTen USA

Abstract:
From the web site: "TopTen USA is a nonprofit organization that identifies and publicizes the most energy-efficient products on the market. We make it easy for consumers to find the most energy- and money-saving models, which in turn encourages manufacturing innovations that will make products in the United States even more energy-efficient. Modeled after organizations located in 16 different European countries, TopTen USA intends to transform the American market from the one of excessive energy use to one that actively sustains products with the highest practical energy-efficiency. By doing so, TopTen USA helps tackle important issues such as climate change, pollution of the environment, the national security threat from our dependence on foreign oil supplies and high energy bills. TopTen USA is a member of the TopTen International Group (TIG), a global alliance of TopTen organizations dedicated to product efficiency." The site includes lists of the top ten energy efficient products in various categories, including refrigerators, freezers, televisions, computers, vehicles, dishwashers, clothes washers and monitors. The evaluation criteria for these lists is detailed within each product category. Links to retailers from which the rated products may be obtained are also included. Products can be sorted by top ten rank or price.
