Saving energy with small technical marvels

Electronic equipment and lighting consume a lot of electricity – even in stand-by mode. It makes sense to buy energy-saving devices, not just for the good of the environment, but also for the sake of your own wallet.

Using less energy need not entail sacrifice. Modern electronic devices are considerably more energy-efficient than their predecessors – and sometimes with better performance. Our Oecoplan and Satrap own label brands are proof of this. Electrical household appliances made by these brands earn top rankings from Topten, the independent platform for consumers looking for energy-efficient products.

Energy label and Topten guide consumers through the equipment jungle

The energy label for the multitude of household appliances makes it even easier to save energy. You can see at a glance how efficiently a piece of equipment runs and how much electricity it consumes. It's even simpler if, before buying electrical appliances, you look for the Topten seal of approval. In 2016, we put Topten-approved, energy-efficient appliances worth a total of 148 million Swiss francs into Swiss households.

LED – a bright idea

Lighting is another source of considerable savings potential. We stopped selling pearl light bulbs in 2009. With our wide range of LEDs, we enable potential energy savings of up to 80 percent. In 2016, we completely overhauled the range, replacing all energy-saving bulbs with the newer, even more energy-efficient LED lighting and greatly expanding our range of energy-efficient lighting.
