Save Electricity by Checking BEE Labels

If rising electricity bills are bothering you, Switch to electrical appliances with BEE (Bureau of Energy Efficiency) label.

You can reduce your electricity bills and help India to increase the availability of electivity for more people, simply by buying Refrigerators, ACs & Tubelights that bear BEE’s Star-Rated Energy Efficiency Labels.

– The BEE Star Energy Efficiency Labels have been created to standardize the energy efficiency ratings of different electrical appliances and indicate energy consumption under standard test conditions.

– These labels indicate the energy efficiency levels through the number of Stars highlighted in colour on the label.

– The BEE Star Labels include a Star Rating System that ranges from One Star (least energy efficient, thus least money saved) to Five Stars (most energy efficient, thus most money saved)

  26. i am planing to buy a split ac which companys ac is good for me
    now a days there are so many optinn’s so we’v got confused
    please advice

  27. @ Tejas Shah – I’m using Samsung 5-Star rated split A/C.

    I dint hav any problem so far (since 1 and a half year)….
    Customer service is great. they come instantly on call.

    It cools in minuts. Samsung has the widest range of features on remote, compared to other companies (which is not at all complicated).

    And yeah, it has beter look.

    Rest is ur choice. All the best.

  28. to know the bee rating of water heater logon to it has all information on water heaters and the bee rating of the water heaters.

  29. It seems there is enough confusion in customer’s mind while purchasing electrical goods,specially AC,Refrigerator etc. I think The BEE need to explain clearly,the implication of using higher star rating. The school level knowledge of science makes clear sense that output energy can not be more than input energy in any form. The quotient(Output/Input) is known as efficiency. The world class manufacturers must ensure,in the first place, quality of the products to be of high efficiency to reduce unnecessary loss of energy and thus environ friendly.

    It is not fair to burden consumer with additional cost of product of higher star rating, in the hope of so called saving of electricity bill in the long run.

    the information given by this site is very much useful and give a clear understanding of star rating

  31. That’s a great information about bee rating
    thanks a lot.

  32. BEE label is an eye wash as manufacturer submits a bogus test report in its lab and had its product certified. A product which ISO certification agency refuses to talk about is also 5 star. What is the value of lab report when product is not certified by ISO alongwith counterfeit components. This is not based on assumption but based on records seen.

  33. There is no BEE star rating for Whirlpool 240L DLX model 3 door refrigerators but the Company has affixed a sticker showing 5 stars in green colour. They have not responded to emails when asked about the star rating and power consumption. Can the BEE let me know what is the annual power consumption of such a frig.

  34. Do not fall in trap by seeing BEE star rated labels. Since these labels are based on self certification, what one actually gets is cheap counterfeits “Made in China”. The test pattern used by BEE is outdated BIS standards with lots of errors which defines characteristics and not efficiency. In fact BEE star label is formality in view of self certification. For a particular product I could not find a single genuine product with BEE 5 star label.

  35. Please inform me the comparative study of AC having different Star ratings. How much energy is saved by using 5 star rating as compared to one star rating. Thanks

  36. PARAMES KUMAR on May 21st, 2012 at 2:35 pm

  37. BEE with star rating is simply as other cheat.
