Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Ceiling Fans
Document Number: 2021-11561
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-03
Agency: Department of Energy
On May 7, 2021, the U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') published an early assessment request for information (``RFI'') undertaking an early assessment review for amended energy conservation standards for ceiling fans to determine whether to amend applicable energy conservation standards for this product. The notice provided an opportunity for submitting written comments, data, and information by June 7, 2021. DOE received a request from the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) and the American Light Association (ALA) for a comment period extension of 45 additional days. AMCA and ALA stated that an extension would improve the quality of the information industry submits to the department and increase the likelihood of presenting the department with consensus recommendations on many of the questions it is asking. DOE has reviewed these requests and is granting an extension of the public comment period for 21 days to allow public comments to be submitted until June 28, 2021.
Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedures for General Service Fluorescent Lamps, Incandescent Reflector Lamps, and General Service Incandescent Lamps
Document Number: 2021-10067
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2021-06-03
Agency: Department of Energy
The U.S. Department of Energy (``DOE'') proposes to amend the test procedures for general service fluorescent lamps (``GSFLs''), incandescent reflector lamps (``IRLs''), and general service incandescent lamps (``GSILs'') to update to the latest versions of the referenced industry test standards and provide cites to specific sections of these standards; to clarify definitions, test conditions and methods, and measurement procedures; to clarify test frequency and inclusion of cathode power in measurements for GSFLs; to provide a test method for measuring color rendering index (``CRI'') of GSILs and IRLs and for measuring lifetime of IRLs; to allow manufacturers to make voluntary (optional) representations of GSFLs at high frequency settings; to revise the sampling requirements; and to align sampling and certification requirements with proposed test procedure terminology and with the Federal Trade Commission's labeling program. DOE is seeking comment from interested parties on the proposal.
