Combined Notice of Filings #1, 18609-18610 [2016-07238]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 62 / Thursday, March 31, 2016 / Notices in effect since July 1, 2008, as of February 10, 2016, all newlymanufactured or imported direct operation EPSs must comply with the new Level VI standards.1 mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES II. Application for Exemption Green Electronics submitted its application requesting a one-year small business exception for specified models of Smart Irrigation Appliance products that use an AC–AC External Power supply (11OV to 24VAC 750mA), part number HELMS–MAN; UA5420240075G. This adapter is a class IV linear transformer and cannot comply with the no load power consumption as required by the February 10, 2016, direct operation standards. These irrigation devices are used to conserve water and are tested to meet EPA’s Federal WaterSense certification program. Green Electronics is asking for an exemption from the current EPS energy conservation standard on the basis of its status as a small business. According to Green Electronics, failure to receive a small business exemption will result in lessening of competition in the market for irrigation controllers. Under 42 U.S.C. 6295(t), DOE may grant an exemption from an applicable energy conservation standard to a manufacturer if DOE finds that the annual gross revenues of such manufacturer from all its operations (including the manufacture and sale of covered products) does not exceed $8,000,000 for the 12-month period preceding the date of the application. In making this finding, DOE must account for the annual gross revenues of any other person who controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with, such manufacturer. The Secretary may not grant an exemption with respect to any type (or class) of covered product subject to an energy conservation standard unless the Secretary makes a finding, after obtaining the written views of the Attorney General, that a failure to allow an exemption would likely result in a lessening of competition. IV. Summary and Request for Comments DOE announces receipt of Green Electronics’ application for a small business exemption of certain products from the energy conservation standards that apply to external power supplies. 1 Generally, a covered product must comply with the relevant standard in effect as of the date the product is manufactured. For products imported into the U.S., this is the date of importation. See 42 U.S.C. 6291(10) (‘‘The term ‘manufacture’ means to manufacture, produce, assemble or import.’’) VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:09 Mar 30, 2016 Jkt 238001 DOE is publishing Green Electronics’ application for exemption in its entirety. DOE solicits comments from interested parties on all aspects of the application. Any person submitting written comments must also send a copy of such comments to the applicant. The contact information for the applicant is: Andrei Bulucea, CTO, Green Electronics LLC, 47801 Fremont Boulevard, Fremont, California 94538. All submissions received must include the agency name and case number for this proceeding. Submit electronic comments in WordPerfect, Microsoft Word, Portable Document Format (PDF), or text (American Standard Code for Information Interchange (ASCII)) file format and avoid the use of special characters or any form of encryption. Wherever possible, include the electronic signature of the author. DOE does not accept telefacsimiles (faxes). According to 10 CFR 1004.11, any person submitting information that he or she believes to be confidential and exempt by law from public disclosure should submit two copies: One copy of the document including all the information believed to be confidential, and one copy of the document with the information believed to be confidential deleted. DOE will make its own determination about the confidential status of the information and treat it according to its determination. Issued in Washington, DC, on March 24, 2016. Kathleen B. Hogan, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. From: Andrei Bulucea, CTO Green Electronics LLC 47801 Fremont Bvd Fremont, CA 94588 Tel: 510–304–3262 To: U.S. Department of Energy Small Business Exemption Appliance Efficiency Standards Assistant Secretary for Conservation and Renewable Energy, Forrestal Building 1000 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20585. We are requesting a 1 year exemption for our Irrigation appliance product that is using an AC–AC External Power supply (11OV to 24VAC 750mA), part number HELMS–MAN; UA5420240075G. This adapter is a class IV linear transformer no load power consumption as required by Level VI regulatory framework. This external AC–AC adapter is used to power our Smart Irrigation Appliance that in turn actuate irrigation valves that PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18609 require 24VAC. More info about our products can be found at www.rainmachine.com NOTE: These devices are primarily used to conserve water and they are tested to meet EPA’s Federal WaterSense certification program. We are asking for an exemption from this energy conservation standard based on the fact that our business is generating less than $8M/year in operations. We are attaching necessary documentation about our company, Green Electronics LLC. Failure to get this exemption will result in lessening of competition in our field of irrigation controllers. We are the manufacturer of our Irrigation appliances and we do not control or are being controlled by, or we are under common control with another manufacturer or manufacturing entity.
