Efficient appliances are growing in New Zealand


The New Zealand Herald wrote that, according to the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority (EECA), the uptake of energy efficient appliances saved 24 million dollar for the country consumers and businesses over one year. New Zealand has worked closely with Australian regulators on minimum energy performance standards to remove the worst performing products from the market. As results, sell-out of the most efficient appliances is growing.
Standards and regulations manager Eddie Thompson said analysis of sales data shows 6.1 million energy efficient appliances were sold in the year ending March 2017.
«Savings from the uptake of energy efficient appliances over one year in New Zealand – he specified – are equal to the energy used by 25,000 homes. The reduction in carbon emissions is equivalent to taking 37,780 cars off the road each year.»
