Amended Energy Conservation Standards Proposed for Metal Halide Lamp Fixtures
The Department of Energy is accepting through Oct. 21 comments, data and information on a proposed rule that would amend the energy conservation standards for metal halide lamp fixtures. The DOE will also hold a public meeting on these proposed standards and associated analyses and results on Sept. 27 in Washington, D.C.
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 result in the significant conservation of energy. In addition, equipment achieving the proposed standard levels is already commercially available for at least some, if not most, covered equipment classes.
