Since 2005, Pentair’s variable speed pool pumps have helped U.S. consumers save $3.0 billion in operating costs, which translates into 27 billion kilowatt hours of energy saved.* The kilowatt hour energy savings helped prevent the release of more than 19.1 million metric tons of carbon dioxide, which is the equivalent of greenhouse gas emissions from 4.1 million passenger vehicles driven for one year.**
“We are proud to be recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year for eight consecutive years. Our high-performing variable speed pool pumps help conserve energy resources and reduce energy costs, so that pool owners can simply focus on enjoying their pool,” said De’Mon Wiggins, Vice President, Pentair Pool. “Pentair helped introduce variable speed technology to the pool industry more than 15 years ago and today, we remain equally dedicated to delivering smart, sustainable water solutions.”
In addition to its ENERGY STAR-rated pool pumps, Pentair offers smart, sustainable solutions to help pool owners conserve energy and water resources including automated controls, heaters and lighting products, reflecting its commitment to design products that facilitate environmental sustainability.
In July 2021, new Department of Energy (DOE) regulations go into effect that require minimum efficiency standards for pool pumps, along with upgraded ENERGY STAR standards. Recognizing our commitment to reduce the environmental impact of our solutions, Pentair collaborated with DOE, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and industry peers to develop and implement these new standards. As a trusted leader within the industry, Pentair takes an active role in providing education and training about these changes with utility rebate program administrators and pool dealers and installers. This includes online and remote training tools, as well as an educational landing page.
*Savings are based on a weighted average annual kWh savings from the Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) at $0.11 / kWh. Individual Weighted Energy Factor (WEF) scores and savings may vary by model.
