2008 Amendments to Appliance Efficiency Regulations
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The Energy Commission's mandate is to promote energy efficiency through a variety of means, including efficiency standards for appliances based on the provisions in Public Resources Code Section 25402. The Commission is proposing changes to the appliance efficiency standards as an action to support its mandate. The proposed amendments considered in the 2008 Appliances Rulemaking include provisions for revised efficiency requirements for metal halide luminaries and residential pool pumps, clarifications to the standardized testing of portable spas, and a voluntary test procedure for battery charger systems to determine their efficiency. Additionally, the proposed amendments will update and revise language in the current regulations so that all language is aligned with recent federal appliance regulations.
