Bet­ter per­form­ing, more ef­fi­cient fridges and freez­ers saved New Zealan­ders $59 mil­lion last year, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est sales data com­piled by the En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency and Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity (EECA). House­hold fridges and freez­ers made the big­gest con­tri­bu­tion to the over­all sav­ings gained by EECA’S prod­ucts pro­gramme, which to­talled $195 mil­lion for the year. EECA’S Prod­ucts pro­gramme uses la­belling to pro­vide con­sumers with en­ergy ef­fi­ciency in­for­ma­tion at the point of sale, and manda­tory stan­dards to re­move the least en­ergy ef­fi­cient prod­ucts from the mar­ket.
