Small electric motors (ICS 13.020, 27.020)
Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Small Electric Motors
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended ("EPCA"), prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including small electric motors. EPCA also requires the U.S. Department of Energy ("DOE") to periodically determine whether more-stringent, amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified, and would result in significant energy savings. In this notification of proposed determination ("NOPD"), DOE has initially determined that amended energy conservation standards for small electric motors would not be cost-effective, and, thus, is not proposing to amend its energy conservation standards for this equipment. DOE requests comment on this proposed determination and the associated analyses and results.
DATES: Meeting: DOE will hold a webinar on 15 March 2023, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time. See section V, "Public Participation," for webinar registration information, participant instructions, and information about the capabilities available to webinar participants.
Comments: Written comments and information are requested and will be accepted on or before 7 April 2023.
