The Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) were introduced in September 2011 for household air-conditioners and refrigerators to help consumers avoid being locked into high energy consumption and costs of the most inefficient appliances. MEPS removes the most inefficient models that fall short of specified minimum energy efficiency levels from the market. In doing so, consumers benefit from lifecycle cost savings. MEPS were introduced for clothes dryers in April 2014 and lamps in July 2015.
