How to calculate energy savings
Energy savings are calculated simply by multiplying the number of items sold by the Default Savings Factor, without any need for engineering assessments or complex calculations for each appliance sold, installed or removed.
The Deemed Energy Savings Method for whitegood sales uses Tables 5, 6, 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d of the Rule to determine the Default Savings Factor. The Default Savings Factor depends on the type and energy star rating of the appliance.
Use the Deemed Energy Savings Method, applying Default Savings Factors. See section 9.3 of the Rule.
Recording your energy savings
You must keep records of all sales or installations. The records must verify the type, model and serial number of each sale.
