FACTS ABOUT ENERGY STAR RATING FOR SKYLIGHT

a- Energy star is an American scheme and the logo is a registered trade mark for USEPA, it can only be used for the products that have been certified by scheme.
b- The usage of the energy star logo for skylight products was developed for USA climate and the qualification criteria are shown in the following table:

c- In our opinion, this scheme is not relevant to Australia’s climate and associating its logo with skylights outside USA climate is meaningless. SolarBright products are not sold in USA market hence we have not applied for this scheme or the use of their logo.
d- SolarBright Maxlight products have been energy rated and certified by a leading global laboratory, and the performance of our Maxlight exceeds the criterial sets by USEPA scheme.
e- Below is a comparative table between Maxlight and Energy star criteria’s in USA.
(Lower the value means better performance)

  • Heat gain and Loss

    SHGC
    U-Factor
  • Energy Star’s best criteria (see table above)

    0.28
    0.53 OR 2.97 W/m2 (metric)
  • SolarBright Maxlight’s best performance

    0.24
    0.29 OR 1.66 W/m2 (Metric)
