3. Terms

 

Electricity cost (10 years): The electricity cost of the refrigerator in 10 years. The price of the electricity is set at 0.5 RMB/kWh. Unit: RMB.

 

Total storage volume: The sum of the volume of refrigerator's freezing compartment, cooling compartments and other functional compartments. Unit: L.

 

Freezing capacity: The quality of food freezed from 25 ° C to -18° C by the refrigerator in 24 hours. Unit: kg/24h.

 

 

Energy Efficiency Index: The ratio between 24 hours energy consumption and total storage volume:

  EEI = (24 hours energy consumption / total volume )*100.

 

 

Standard daily electricity consumption: Measured electricity consumed by the refrigerator in 24 hours. Unit: kWh/24h.

 

Annual electricity consumption: The electricity consumed by the refrigerator in one year. Unit: kWh.

 

National energy efficiency grade: This is the mandatory grading system for energy using products to disclose the energy performance to the consumers. Grade 5 is the minimum energy efficiency requirement for the market access and Grade 1 is the best for the refrigerators.
