MEPS - Minimum Energy Performance Standards
MEPS is a regulatory standard for power usage of a product while in Standby mode. As a commitment to environmental responsibility all Strong Australia Product are MEPS Compliant.
"The Ministerial Council on Energy (MCE) has resolved that Australia will expand its commitment to reducing excessive standby by formulating coordinated product-specific plans to address excessive standby over ten years, 2002 - 2012, within the umbrella of the IEA "One Watt" initiative. Within this timeframe, specific product types may be identified as "at risk" of using excessive standby and will therefore be targeted for specific action. Each product will then be dealt with in potentially a two-stage action plan designed to reduce standby to levels acceptable for that product as quickly as economically viable. The first stage is development of product profiles for each major product group. Details of the strategy are outlined in the Ministerial Council on Energy strategy on standby titled "Money isn't all you're saving"."
