Energy Conservation Program for Certain Industrial Equipment: Determination Concerning the Potential for Energy Conservation Standards for Small Electric Motors
Document Number: E6-10437
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2006-07-10
Agency: Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office
The Department of Energy (DOE or the Department) has determined, based on the best information currently available, that energy conservation standards for certain single-phase, capacitor- start, induction-run, small electric motors are technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. This determination initiates the process of establishing, by notice and comment rulemaking, test procedures and energy conservation standards for this equipment.
