Understanding Energy Efficiency Rating
Energy efficiency implies “using less energy to offer the same service.” It is not only about how little energy a device consumes but also about striking a balance between the energy demand and the supply. The energy Efficiency Rating/Ratio of a unit is the ratio of the Quantity of cooling energy to the amount of energy required to power the unit.
The SASO Energy Efficiency Rating Certificate aims to test the imported products against technical regulations set by SASO to rationalize and increase the energy efficiency in production and consumption to preserve the KSA natural resources and economic and social welfare of the KSA. The Energy Efficiency Rating Certificate is issued to products imported to Saudi Arabia after a satisfactory examination of their energy efficiency levels against the SASO technical regulations.
Regulations on Energy Efficiency of Labelling
The SASO Energy Efficiency Rating system is a labeling system that informs consumers about the efficiency and energy consumption of an electric appliance. After successfully registering the unit in the system, the label reflects the efficiency and level of energy consumption. The system generates an energy efficiency label which is an awareness card for the consumer and is installed on the product denoting its level of energy efficiency.
An energy efficiency label has the following information displayed on the product-
- Type of product
- Product specifications
- QR Code
- Place of origin
- Model number
- Quantity of products purchased annually
