Pentair Wins 2019 ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year - Sustained Excellence Award
We are proud to announce that we received the 2019 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year – Sustained Excellence Award for our continued leadership and contributions to ENERGY STAR. This honor marks the sixth year that we have been recognized for our continued leadership in protecting the environment through superior energy efficiency achievements.
“Pentair’s introduction of variable speed pump technology to the pool industry more than a decade ago illustrates our ongoing commitment to deliver smart, sustainable water solutions to our customers,” said Jerome Pedretti the Senior Vice President at Pentair Aquatic Systems. “We are proud to be recognized as an ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year, and to be the only manufacturer in our industry to achieve the Sustained Excellence designation.”
Since 2007, our pool pumps have helped U.S. pool owners save $1.9 billion in operating costs, which translates into 18 billion kilowatt hours of energy saved and the kilowatt energy savings helped prevent the release of 14.0 million tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to 31.1 billion car-driven miles.*
To qualify for the voluntary ENERGY STAR certification, pool pumps must be at least 30-72 percent more energy efficient than typical pumps.
“For the approximately five million homes in the U.S. with an in-ground swimming pool, the traditional single speed pool pump is one of the top three energy-using appliances in the home,” added Pedretti. “Pentair’s variable speed pool pumps help conserve energy resources and reduce energy costs, providing pool owners with peace of mind so that they can enjoy their pools with friends and family.”
In addition to ENERGY STAR certified pool pumps, we also offer smart, sustainable solutions to help pool owners conserve energy and water resources including automated controls, heaters and lighting products.

Additionally, you can find more information about our current rebate program for select ENERGY STAR certified pump models and find helpful ENERGY STAR resources at Pentair.com/energystar.
The highest honor among ENERGY STAR Awards is the ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year—Sustained Excellence Award. EPA presents the Sustained Excellence Award to partners that have already received ENERGY STAR Partner of the Year recognition for a minimum of two consecutive years and have gone above and beyond the criteria needed to qualify for recognition.
