If you're shopping for Energy Star appliances to reap some energy savings, you may have noticed that some appliances show a CEE Tier I, II or III.  While this energy-related tier does not replace Energy Star, it does go one step further and denotes an appliance that is even more energy efficient.   Why does it matter?  An appliance that is both Energy Star compliant plus has a CEE Tier III, will save you the most in terms of electricity and water use.  Learn more about the CEE  program and who establishes this tier in CEE Tier for Appliances.

Thanks Mariette! I deal with the content on our e-commerce website, Ice Machines Plus, and while we have many Energy Star qualified ice machines, I noticed that some of our ice machines were rated at different tiers. This helped clarify what that meant!
