EECA awards the ENERGY STAR® mark to products and appliances with superior energy efficiency within their category.
The ENERGY STAR® mark is retiring at the end of 2017. EECA started using the voluntary ENERGY STAR label in 2005 as a quick guide to help consumers choose energy efficient appliances. ENERGY STAR has become less relevant as the trans-Tasman E3 programme has gained momentum – this programme regulates to remove the worst performing products from the market and lets consumers compare the energy efficiency of appliances through the Energy Rating Label.
ENERGY STAR qualified products
The blue ENERGY STAR mark can be found in New Zealand on a range of product categories including whiteware, home electronics, heating and cooling, lighting and office equipment.
