3.1 continued METHOD CONTENT RESOURCES SHOW Galaxy Energy Awards DISCUSS Galaxy Energy Award winning appliances are those electrical and gas appliances demonstrating the highest level of energy efficiency in their class. STATE / READ They are “the cream of the crop.” The Galaxy Energy Award winning appliances are easily identified as they will have the highest star ratings and are the most energy efficient appliances on the market. To help consumers more easily identify the Galaxy Energy Award winning appliances manufacturers and retailers are encouraged to display the Galaxy Energy Award logo on all winning appliances and in brochures and advertising. They are also listed in the Galaxy winner’s brochures, Consumer Buyer Guides and on the national energy rating and Galaxy Award websites. Under the ‘Reach for the Stars’ Program there is also a category of Energy Smart appliances. These are simply those appliances that are in the top 20% in terms of energy efficiency. They are identified in the Consumer Buyer Guides available to all sales staff. Another important role for appliance sales staff is to educate customers about the new Energy Rating label. Some customers may be confused by the change to the label, so it is important for you to have a clear understanding of the new label and how it can help customers make an informed decision in purchasing an Energy Smart appliance. An added bonus is that Galaxy Energy Award winning and Energy Smart appliances usually sell at higher price points. So by recommending only these appliance you will undoubtedly improve your sales figures and be rewarded. Another reward could come through the Galaxy Energy Awards. W/B 20 W/B 21 Page 23
