LG Electronics actively participated to the Energy Star Day


Initiatives and events were organized in North Caroline in occasion of the “Energy Star Day”, commemorated in all the United States.
LG Electronics partnered with leading home improvement retailer Lowe’s and non-profit partner “Rebuilding Together” to provide energy efficiency upgrades for local families in Charlotte, North Carolina earlier this week.
Employees from LG and Lowe’s were among the 100-plus volunteers from the local community who joined together in October on critical home repairs for four residents in Charlotte’s Druid Hills neighborhood. They replaced flooring, repaired roofs and insulated for weatherization, painted interiors and exteriors, attached smoke detectors and handicap-accessible features – and installed Energy Star certified LG appliances.
The Energy Star improvements will not only make life more convenient, they will also save the families money over time. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, on average a house equipped with Energy Star certified appliances will save nearly USD 630 over the products’ lifetime.
According to Beth Morrison, Executive Director of Rebuilding Together of Charlotte, this year’s Energy Star Day project is part of a long-term, multi-partner reinvestment initiative to prevent displacement of current residents in the neighborhood. She thanked LG, Lowe’s and the EPA “for bringing much-needed energy efficiency upgrades to families in this underserved Charlotte community.”
LG provided front-load clothes washers earning the Energy Star Most Efficient 2019 designation and companion Energy Star certified clothes dryers. Some homes received an Energy Star certified LG top-load washer and companion Energy Star LG dryer. In addition to installing Energy Star LG InstaView Door-in-Door refrigerators in the homes, volunteers completed the kitchen makeovers with new LG ranges and microwave ovens.
