Energy rating labels

Energy rating labels provide consumers with information on how much electricity an appliance uses in a year, plus a star rating to show how energy efficient it is. The label helps the buyer compare between models and choose the most energy-efficient appliance that suits their needs.  

Energy rating label


All new whiteware, heat pumps, televisions and computer monitors available for sale in New Zealand must display an energy rating label.

Importers, manufacturers, retailers, and people selling new appliances have obligations to ensure that energy rating labels are fixed to or supplied with appliances for sale.  This is a regulatory requirement detailed under minimum energy performance standards and labelling for individual products.

Find out more information about energy rating labels on the ENERGYWISE™ website.
