Palestine has a rapid increase on the number of electrical household appliances (EHA) in the last few years, as a result of increase the life level standards, which increase hugely the national electrical energy consumption; and this increase caused national energy crisis, energy unbalance, and energy discontinuity. Palestine has to legislate and implement EHA minimum energy efficiency performance standards (MEPS) to lower the electrical energy consumption, to achieve the electrical energy stability. Calculations output prominently show and approve the household‟s feasibility of using high efficient appliances (HE) and a huge opportunity of energy conservation and saving on the households and on the national level in addition to the environment protection through the huge mitigated amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) to be emitted to Palestine atmosphere, a face to face forty surveyed households; energy classification labels of EHA knowledge and households behavior in addition classifications of owned EHA studied. EHA quantities and classifications statistics and records in Palestinian ministries and institutions are very weak as a result of Palestine government no control on the boarders. Some of the world countries status in the field of EHA energy efficiency and classification label overviewed, and studied through the XIV international paper research, reports, and books, these references showed the positive impacts of implementing MEPS and energy classification label on the economical, and environmental aspects
