Individuals in the UK are set to save money on gas and electricity with a new energy efficiency campaign for household goods.
Environment secretary Caroline Spelman has introduced the European Energy Label so that consumers purchasing washing machines, fridge freezers, TVs and dishwashers will be able to see how much energy they use at the point of sale.
This could save them a significant amount on electricity bills.
The minister said: "Consumers want to make the right decisions when buying new goods that use less energy and bring down household bills. These new energy saving ratings will help people make the right choice when out shopping for TVs and white goods by choosing those which are rated the darkest green on the labels."
The labels will be implemented from June 20th this year. In addition to energy efficiency, consumers can save money on their energy bills by doing an energy price comparison to find a cheaper tariff.
