Displays and monitors
Buy ENERGY STAR® to save you money!
An ENERGY STAR certified monitor or display uses 15% less energy, on average, than a standard model. Monitors that have earned the ENERGY STAR Most Efficient designation are the best of the best – they’ll save you more energy than standard models. Saving energy saves money and reduces your carbon footprint.
There are three main types of electronic displays eligible for ENERGY STAR certification: computer monitors, digital picture frames and professional signage displays.
- Meet stringent energy efficiency requirements in "on", "sleep", and "off" modes.
- Allow you to set your monitor to first dim and then enter a low power sleep mode when the computer is inactive.
- Automatic brightness control features are set to a power-saving mode for shipment, which allows monitors to conserve power automatically when they are turned on.
Start your research using the ENERGY STAR Product Finder tool to find and compare certified displays. (NOTE: you will be redirected to the US ENERGY STAR website.)
- Don’t use screen savers. Screen savers generally do not save energy, and may
- actually prevent a computer from entering sleep mode.
- Enable your computer's power-reducing features to turn off the display when you are away from your computer for extended periods to reduce energy consumption.
