EPA Names Phihong Power Supply Energy Star Partner

January 30, 2005 by Jeff Shepard

Phihong (Fremont, CA) announced that it is the first manufacturer of external power supplies to be named a partner of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ENERGY STAR® Program. As a partner, Phihong’s products must meet strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and the Department of Energy. On average, ENERGY STAR models are 35% more efficient than conventional designs, and often are lighter and smaller in size.

"This partnership caps a long involvement for Phihong with the EPA," said Phihong Vice President of Marketing Keith Hopwood. "We have long been committed to developing energy-efficient, environmentally friendly power supplies because we believe that conforming to the new energy standards is the best way to do business now."

"The EPA is very pleased to welcome Phihong as the first manufacturing partner for ENERGY STAR-qualified power supplies," said EPA Director of the Climate Protection Partnerships Division Kathleen Hogan. "As the first partner, Phihong assumes a leadership role as a key provider of highly efficient power supplies for its customers in the United States and throughout the world."
