How do I apply for the ENERGY STAR?

Commercial buildings achieving a score of 75 or higher using Portfolio Manager and verified by a professional engineer are eligible to apply for the ENERGY STAR. To get started, enter the required data into Portfolio Manager. The tool will tell you if your building may qualify for the ENERGY STAR. If it does, your next step is to complete the verification process and submit your application. There is no cost to apply. Learn more about this process.

For manufacturing plants, energy managers input key plant operating data into a plant energy performance indicator (EPI) to receive an energy efficiency score on a scale of 1 to 100. Plants achieving a score of 75 or higher may be eligible for the ENERGY STAR. For those plants that are eligible, download the application forms from the ENERGY STAR website and submit them to EPA along with the necessary verifications. Learn more about this process.
