In the past, refrigerators consumed more energy than any other home appliance but in the last twenty years progress has been made to design, manufacture, and encourage the sale of refrigerators with improved energy efficiency. In the early 1990s a competition was held among the major manufacturers to encourage energy efficiency.
Current models that are Energy Star qualified use 50 percent less energy than the average models made in 1974.
The most energy-efficient unit made in the US consumes about half a kilowatt-hour per day. But even ordinary units are quite efficient; some smaller units use less than 0.5 kilowatt-hour per day.
