Over their lifetime, compared to products that do not meet EPEAT criteria, the 288 EPEAT registered electronics purchased by Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility in 2016 will result in environmental impact reductions including:

  • Reduce use of primary materials by 36.6 metric tons, equivalent to the weight of one tractor-trailer 18-wheeler

  • Eliminate the equivalent of one U.S. household’s solid waste for 6 months—992 kg
  • Avoidance of 154 kg of water pollutant emissions


Energy-Related Savings
EPEAT’s requirement that registered products meet the latest ENERGY STAR specifications means these products will consume less energy throughout their useful life, resulting in:

  • Savings of 103,000 kWh of electricity—enough to power 8 U.S. homes for a year
  • Reduction of 17.9 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions— equivalent to taking 13 average U.S. passenger cars off the road for a year
  • $10,600 in lifetime cost savings
