Strong interest in new consumer tool

About 23,000 people have used the new Rightware tool, launched by EECA Energywise in New Zealand to help shoppers avoid buying power hungry appliances.

Rightware gives consumers information about the running costs of appliances registered for sale in New Zealand, as well as letting people compare and filter products for specifications such as brand and size.

For the initial launch of Rightware, popular consumer categories are included; heat pump air conditioners, televisions, fridge/freezers, clothes washers, clothes dryers, dishwashers and computer monitors. Other appliances, including some commercial products, will be added over the coming months.
