Stricter Energy Conservation Standards Proposed for Conventional Ovens
The Department of Energy is proposing new and amended energy conservation standards for residential conventional ovens, including those that are part of conventional ranges. 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. 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 on this proposal are due no later than Aug. 10. DOE will hold a public meeting July 14, which will also be broadcast as a webinar, to receive comment on the proposed standards and associated analyses and results.
