• Gas powered alarm clock certified with an Energy Star Label

    You might probably lose faith in the Energy Star label after reading this. This label is usually seen on energy efficient appliances around America in an effort to promote the manufacture and use of greener technology and saving energy. However, a gasoline powered alarm clock recently managed to cheat its way into being labeled with the Energy Star recently. By submitting false documents claiming that the clock was 20-percent more efficient than its peers, this gas-guzzling device managed an Energy Star label.

    This might probably have an auto-approval system to blame that certified this product. The guys at Energy Star sure will have their heads hung in embarrassment after this incident. A gas-gulping clock sure doesn’t deserve an Energy Star label with solar-powered ones around.
