Energy Conservation Program: Test Procedure and Labeling Requirements for Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pump Motors (25 page(s), in English)
Notice of proposed rulemaking and request for comment - The U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") is proposing to establish a test procedure and an accompanying labeling requirement for dedicated-purpose pool pump ("DPPP") motors. Specifically, DOE is proposing to incorporate by reference an industry standard pertaining to DPPP definitions and marking requirements; require the use of an industry testing standard for testing the energy efficiency of DPPP motors; and to establish a labeling requirement that would specify information to be included on the permanent nameplate, catalogs, and marketing materials of DPPP motors. DOE is seeking comment from interested parties on the proposal.
