This week, Chris gave us some great information on shopping for energy-efficient products. He reminded us that the cost to run appliances and home office and electronics is just as important as the purchase price, and posted a new Energy Savers graphic that shows you how to read the EnergyGuide and Energy Star labels.

It’s a great reminder that when you buy energy-efficient products, you save money and energy all year ‘round.

If you're doing any Black Friday shopping, will you be looking for energy efficiency ratings using the EnergyGuide or Energy Star labels? Why or why not?

Each week, you have the chance to share your thoughts on a question about energy efficiency or renewable energy for consumers. Please comment with your answers, and also feel free to respond to other comments.
