Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Department of Energy has reopened through Dec. 22 the period for comments, data and information regarding a proposed rule that would toughen the energy conservation standards for small, large and very large air-cooled commercial package air conditioning and heating equipment. The original comment period expired Dec. 1 but various stakeholders requested more time to consider the proposed standards, the associated technical support document and analytical tools, and the presentation from a Nov. 6 public meeting and to prepare and submit comments and data accordingly. The DOE has said that the proposed standards, if adopted, would apply to all subject equipment manufactured in and intended for distribution and sale in, or imported into, the U.S. on or after the date that is three years after the publication of the final rule.
