Where to Buy

Life Cycle Cost Savings

For most applications, Energy Star-qualified digital displays have the lowest life-cycle cost. An efficient product is cost effective when the energy costs saved over the life of the product exceed the additional upfront cost (if any) of the more efficient model. Energy Star considers both upfront costs and lifetime energy cost savings when setting required efficiency levels. Federal purchasers can assume that Energy Star-qualified products are life-cycle cost effective. On its Purchasing & Procurement page, Energy Star offers MS-Excel-based calculators to estimate how much money and energy you can save purchasing ENERGY STAR office equipment products.

Additional Guidance
The final Energy Star v7.0 specification for computer monitors and signage displays took effect on July 1, 2016. There are several key changes to note. The specification includes both signage displays and signage displays and monitors with plug-in modules. The revised definition of "signage displays" differentiates these products from "computer monitors". The specification excludes products with an integrated television tuner; displays such as electronic readers or battery-powered digital picture frames; and products that must meet Food and Drug Administration specifications for medical devices that prohibit power management capabilities and/or do not have a power state meeting the definition of Sleep Mode.
