During the calendar year 2017, EFI received eCommerce orders for 2.4 million energy-saving products. If all products ordered are installed, 138 million fewer kilowatt hours of electricity will be consumed annually, which is equivalent to the annual energy consumption of over 12,000 homes in the United States. The impact that EFI's eCommerce initiatives had in 2017 represented a 52% increase over 2016 when the products ordered represented an annual energy savings of 91 million kWh of electricity.
The potential reduction in energy consumption would save consumers $14.6 million annually. In 2017 the median household income was $59,039, which means the savings resulting from EFI's eCommerce efforts is equivalent to the annual household income of 247 families. The reduction in consumption also means that 62,760 metric tons. Of carbon dioxide associated with electricity generation would not be produced. Carbon Dioxide is one of the most significant contributors to global warming because of its atmospheric persistence. For a unit of CO2 emitted into the atmosphere today, 40% will remain in the atmosphere a century later, and 20% will still be present 1,000 years from now. The accumulative nature of CO2, coupled with its heat-trapping properties, exacerbates its contribution to global warming. The reductions we can achieve through the programs we are running now will have positive benefits for generations.
In 2017 there were twenty-nine energy-saving product categories tracked by EFI. At an aggregated level the table below shows the contribution that these broad categories have made.

We are very excited to be able to combine the convenience of online shopping with the importance of energy and water efficiency. Customers can have a personalized shopping experience and know they are purchasing high-end products that will help them save energy and water.Steve Z. General Manager
We had just moved to our new home and really needed to shore up the heating system, figure out how we could afford new windows (they were original), and find out why our heat never stayed in the house. We worked with MassSave and EFI to assess our home, qualify for, and fulfill a heat loan. We were up and running with a new heating system, with a zero interest heat loan in about a week! This couldn't have been easier, and, to be honest, more needed. Thank you EFI and MassSave!Ryan D, Mass Save Marketplace Customer
We’re excited to partner with EFI! Using our existing programs, customers have saved millions of dollars in energy costs over the years. The PPL Marketplace certainly will add to those savings.Mary Ann M. Manager of PPL’s residential EE programs
We worked with EFI to create a product marketplace to offer our customer base an easy to use shopping portal. Our goal this year was to move 500K bulbs across all of our jurisdictions, and the EFI's marketplace and marketing expertise ensured that that number was hit by Q3. These guys know what they are doing, its just that simple.Ron S. Manager – Planning and Evaluation
I am always very happy with your service. I am proud that you want to help us save energy - I bought a ton of light bulbs. Thank you for being one of the few services I use that I can feel good about!Tracey Kitchens - Marketplace Customer
