LG strengthens its Energy Star muscle

LG Electronics USA has augmented its commitment to the Energy Star certification program. More than 60 of its products have already earned the 2013 Energy Star Most Efficient designation this year, which is more than the company earned throughout the entirety of 2012.

The company earned the most points for its televisions, 51 of which earned the Most Efficient label this year. Its next strongest category was refrigerators, seven of which have been recognized so far. According to the company, this is more than any other television or refrigerator manufacturer, respectively.

"LG was one of the few industry participants to enthusiastically endorse and promote Energy Star's Most Efficient proposal and criteria when it was first introduced," said LG president and CEO Wayne Park. "We're proud to conitnue leading the industry in developing the most energy-efficient products possible, while ensuring consumers don't have to sacrifice performance or style."

Among other energy efficiency features, LG's Most Efficient-certified televisions include innovative features such as the "Intelligent Sensor," which automatically adjusts screen brightness according to surrounding lighting conditions.
