$4.4 million (2016)
Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 1,896 EPEAT registered electronics purchased by DEA Office of Investigative Technology in 2016 will result in environmental impact reductions including:
Reduce use of primary materials by 191.6 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of 5 tractor-trailer 18-wheelers
Avoid the disposal of 1.5 metric tons of hazardous waste, equal to the weight of 12 refrigerators
Eliminate the equivalent of 2 U.S. households’ solid waste for a year—4.9 metric tons
Avoidance of 786 kg of water pollutant emissions
Savings of 535,400 kWh of electricity—enough to power 42 U.S. homes for a year
Reduction of 93.8 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions— equivalent to taking 67 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
$55,310 in lifetime cost savings
