The higher the rating, the greater the energy savings!

The higher the rating, the greater the energy savings!

A number of countries have introduced energy performance ratings for household appliances.  For example in Australia and New Zealand the energy performance rating is measured in stars on a label put on the appliance.  The number of stars shows how efficient the appliance is and also how much energy the appliance is likely to use in a year.

The star rating indicates the energy efficiency of the appliance on a scale of 1 to 6 stars.  In this case 3.5 stars.

I t shows the Appliance Type and Model Number and how much energy the appliance typically uses annually in kilowatt per hours (kWh) when tested to the Australia / New Zealand standard.

As an example, a 3.5 star rating (high efficiency) refrigerator with 350 litres capacity can save you about NZ$150 per year on your electricity bill when compared to a 1 star rating (low efficiency) of the same capacity.
