When a property earns ENERGY STAR certification, it receives a decal containing the year in which the award was received. Similarly, properties included on the ENERGY STAR Registry are listed with the year they received the award.
Certification decals may be displayed indefinitely on qualified properties. However, recipients of ENERGY STAR certification are encouraged to continue benchmarking their properties’ energy use and re-apply annually to keep their certification current.
The re-certification process is the same as the initial process.
