Stricter Energy Conservation Standards Proposed for Conventional Cooking Products
The Department of Energy is proposing new and amended energy conservation standards for residential conventional cooking tops and conventional ovens. 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 standard levels are already commercially available for at least some, if not most, covered product classes.
If adopted, these 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. Comments, data, and information on this proposal are due no later than Oct. 3.
