Energy Conservation Program: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Clothes Washers
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act ("EPCA"), as amended, prescribes energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including commercial clothes washers ("CCWs"). 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 conservation of energy. In this notification of proposed determination ("NOPD"), DOE has initially determined that amended energy conservation standards for commercial clothes washers do not need to be amended and requests comment on this proposed determination and the associated analyses and results.
Meeting: DOE will hold a webinar on Tuesday, 8 February 2022, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST. See section VII, "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 18 February 2022.
