Energy Conservation Standards for Ceiling Fan Light Kits May be Toughened

Thursday, August 13, 2015
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Energy is proposing to amend the energy conservation standards for ceiling fan light kits. 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.

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.

DOE will hold a public meeting Aug. 18 to receive comments on the proposed standards and associated analyses and results. DOE also welcomes comments, data and information regarding this proposal through Oct. 13.
