NEW HAVEN, CT - When the Professional Football Championship is played in New Orleans on Feb. 3, many Americans and fans everywhere will enjoy the big game with new televisions and other electronic appliances.

UIL Holdings Corporation (NYSE: UIL) is advising customers to go for maximum yardage by purchasing efficient ENERGY STAR® products.

ENERGY STAR is a U.S.-government-backed program that sets energy efficiency standards for a wide variety of consumer products. TVs, projectors, refrigerators, ranges and other products that carry the ENERGY STAR label must meet strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy. Visit TopTenUSA.org as a great resource for these products. The site is a helpful online guide to retail locations where you can find energy efficient products.

“We know we have a lot of football fans out there among our customers, and many of them will be hosting parties,” said Anthony Marone, UIL’s vice president of business services. “If you’re planning to upgrade your TV or other appliances before the big game, it’s a great time to give some thought to how much you can save over time by factoring energy efficiency into your choice.”

“Many ENERGY STAR products display information about their estimated annual energy consumption right on the packaging, so you can compare not only sticker prices but also the cost of operating them,” Marone added. “The great thing is, when you choose energy-efficient products, you’re also scoring one for the environment by reducing greenhouse-gas emissions.”

According to the ENERGY STAR website, www.energystar.gov, the program helped Americans save enough energy in 2010 alone to avoid greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from 33 million cars — all while saving nearly $18 billion on their utility bills.

The National Retail Federation estimates that a record 179.1 million people will watch the big game on Feb. 3, and more than 7.5 million households will buy a new TV for the game.
