Top Ten Chile is a digital platform that delivers reliable and neutral information concerning the energy consumption of different electrical and electronic products present in the national market.
Top Ten is an international initiative currently operating in 15 countries, that allows consumers to consume less energy and thus saving on their monthly bill.
Top Ten Chile was the first platform in Latin America to join this great international network. Fundación Chile is the implementing entity, in coordination with Top Ten International, the Chilean Ministry of Energy, and the Superintendency of Electricity and Fuels.
Its main goals are:
Provide neutral and clear information for consumers, that allows them to make informed purchases in terms of energy consumption and cost/savings that this decision generates.
Create awareness on the importance of energy savings/efficiency, both for the consumer’s monthly energy expenditure that an appliance may generate, as well as in terms of the environment.
Encourage through the demand in the national market an increase in the availability of efficient products.
Sensitize consumers on what to consider before making a purchase and provide tips for efficient use of the appliances being purchased.
Top Ten compares the prices of different products offered by the main national stores providing every 12 hours updated information on market availability and prices.
Top Ten offers a selection of the most efficient products in different categories:
Printers and televisions.
Plug-in hybrid vehicles and electric cars.
Split wall and firewood and pellet heaters.
Microwaves, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines and dryers.
By providing reliable and transparent data on these products’ energy consumption, Top Ten Chile seeks to transform the market, consistent with the country’s energy challenges.
All the information provided by the platform is the official information generated in the certification processes required by all products commercialized in Chile according to the requirements of the Ministry of Energy and the Superintendency of Electricity and Fuels, SEC.
