Description:

Since 1995, Refrigerator was the first appliance in the label no.5 project. The project was well cooperated by 5 major manufacturers and the importers which are Sanyo Universal Electric Co.ltd , Hitachi Consumer Product (Thailand), Kang Yong Electric co.ltd,  A.P. National Electric co.ltd and Thai Toshiba Industry co.ltd. Companies enhance the efficiency of appliance continually to meet the criteria of Thai Industrial Standard Institute (TISI) and testing procedure of

Rescaling the efficiency criteria of the label no.5 refrigerator

         Since 2001, EGAT and participated companies are joined to develop the efficiency of the label no.5 refrigerator to gain 20% higher efficiency under the logo label no.5 (2001). It is not only the method to improve the benefit for customers but also develop the standard of appliance manufacturing. Electrical and Electronics Institute (EEI). The project initial launched with 1 door refrigerator and then expanded to 2 doors refrigerator as the demand of consumer since 2000 until present.

For instance,  energy consumption conditions for refrigerators are:
