Energy Conservation Standards for Spray Valves May be Toughened
The Department of Energy is proposing to amend the energy conservation standards for commercial prerinse spray valves. The department 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.
DOE will hold a July 28 public meeting (which will also be broadcast as a webinar) to receive comments on the proposed standards and associated analyses and results. DOE also welcomes comments, data and information regarding this proposal through Sept. 8.
