New energy labelling of lamps and light bulbs
Cartoon from 4 September 2021 in CTXT
This new energy labelling, which came into force on 1 September, mainly for light bulbs and lamps, began to be applied in March this year to five families of electrical products (refrigerators, freezers and wine coolers, washing machines and washer-dryers, dishwashers and electronic displays) both in physical shops and on the Internet.
According to the ministry’s note, the new labelling of electrical products eliminates the A+, A++ and A+++ energy classes, reverting to a rating scale ranging from A to G, where A is assigned to the most energy-efficient and energy-efficient products, and G to the most energy-efficient and least energy-efficient products. In this way, the label will maintain seven different classes.
A unique QR code will be added to the new labels so that the specific characteristics and data of each model can be consulted in a new European-wide database called EPREL (European Product Database for Energy Labelling).
What is shocking aWhat is amusing are some of the resulting headlines, which are nothing less than telling us that, with the label, we are going to save a lot of money.
Here they say that, by reading the label, you will never be afraid again. When the electricity goes up again, as it does almost every day, you can rub the label against the bill and you will instantly regain your inner peace.

You can also read one of the thousands of other asshole articles that have been published telling you the twelve tricks you didn’t know (the tenth one will surprise you) to lower your electricity bill, such as the steps to light a fire by friction using two sticks.
On Sunday, Pedro Sánchez fixed the electricity bill. Or something like that. He made an election pledge assuring that at the end of the year will balance the robberies of big electricity companies.
