More Input Sought on Proposal to Toughen Energy Standards for Ceiling Fans
The Department of Energy is extending to April 14 the comment period in connection with its proposal to toughen the energy conservation standards for ceiling fans. The DOE has tentatively concluded that the proposed standards represent the maximum improvement in energy efficiency that is technologically feasible and economically justified and would save a significant amount of energy. In addition, products achieving the proposed standards are already commercially available for all product classes covered by the proposal. If adopted, the proposed standards would apply to all covered products manufactured in or imported into the U.S. on or after the date that is three years after the publication of a final rule.
