The Energy Rating Label

The E3 Program logo


The E3 Program oversees labelling to ensure consumers have information on the energy efficiency of a product. Products are labelled so that the information is available at the point-of-sale. 

This allows consumers to take into account how much an appliance will cost to run, when deciding which model to buy.
