BEE Certification: History and Definition
When the 21st Century arrived, people’s perception towards electrical products changed, and so does the seller’s. Appliances that were once seen as luxury, became a necessity. People who once couldn’t afford them, now saved to buy them. Soon, the prices dropped as well, and more and more people started to buy the electrical appliances. At hindsight, it was admirable. However, the more the electric appliance sale rose, the more government got afraid of losing valuable electric power.
That fear gave rise to BEE certification in India. By testing the product and rating on its energy efficiency, the Bureau intends to promote manufacturers to create products that use less electric power. At the same time, it promotes people to buy products that are five star rated in terms of electric efficiency.
