Delta, a global leader in power and thermal solutions, today announced it has been named a 2020 ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for the fifth consecutive year by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its energy-efficient, quiet and reliable, Delta Breez Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) solutions. The milestone also represents the third year in a row the Company was honored with the distinguished "Sustained Excellence" designation, the highest honor among the ENERGY STAR® Awards and which recognizes companies that have gone above the Partner of Year Award criteria. In 2019 alone, Delta provided more than 600,000 ENERGY STAR®-qualified Delta Breez ventilation fans across the United States, including hotels, homes, apartments, student housing, and other facilities.
"Five years as ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year and recognition with the Sustained Excellence Award once again underscores our commitment to innovation and leading energy-efficiency through our smart green solutions," said Kelvin Huang, President of Delta Electronics (Americas). "The spirit of ENERGY STAR® is at the heart of our Delta Breez IAQ solutions, which include as many as 56 certified ventilation fan models, all capable of helping consumers and builders enable a smarter, greener tomorrow by leveraging Delta's world-class DC brushless motor technology."
"I salute the 2020 ENERGY STAR award winners," said Anne Idsal, EPA Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for Air and Radiation. "These leaders demonstrate how energy efficiency drives economic competitiveness in tandem with environmental protection."
More than 90 percent of the Delta Breez portfolio is ENERGY STAR®-qualified due to the fans' exclusive use of brushless DC motor technology and LED lighting to maximize energy savings. Since last year, Delta has introduced 10 new exhaust fans within the Delta BreezSignature, Delta BreezIntegrity and Delta BreezElite series – all of which are certified ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient 2019. Delta BreezElite fans save 67 percent more energy than typical AC motor counterparts, with some of the line's models exceeding ENERGY STAR® requirements by more than 200 percent.
In 2019, Delta supplied more than 600,000 ENERGY STAR®-qualified Delta Breez ventilation fans for housing projects including apartments, student housing, senior living facilities and hotels. Among its large-scale installations, Delta provided 1,700 ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient fans for a university student housing complex in California. Another 1,200 fans were installed in a riverfront hotel renovation in Kentucky with an estimated savings of $14,000 off the annual electric bill compared to typical AC motor fans.
Delta has long had a reputation for innovation and pushing the envelope for the residential bathroom ventilation sector. In 2011, Delta was the first manufacturer in the United States to incorporate LED lighting on our bath fans, and has exclusively used LEDs since 2017. Delta also led the pack with the first edge-lit LED bathroom fan combination, a game-changer for the industry that came to market in 2018.
