Document Description
Emergency rulemaking to amend CA Code of Regulations, title 20, section 1602(g) to define permanent magnet synchronous motors, and to amend CA Code of Regulations, title 20, section 1606, table X, subsection G, to add permanent magnet synchronous as a permissible motor construction type for residential pool pump and motors combinations and replacement residential pool pump motors. The purpose of the amendments is to allow manufacturers to certify permanent magnet synchronous motors, found in residential pool pump and motor combinations or used as replacement residential pool pump motors, to the Commission and thereby permit their sale or offer for sale in CA. These amendments will benefit CA residents by allowing the sale of low cost, less energy consuming, storable pools containing pool pumps powered by PMSM motors.

Notice of Exemption

Exempt Status
Other
Type, Section or Code
Other: 15061(b)(3)
Reasons for Exemption
The adoption of these amendments will allow the sale of storable pools containing pool pumps powered by PMSM motors that consume less energy than other types of pool pump motors used in storable pools that are in compliance with existing regulations. The PMSM motor construction type is made from substantially the same materials and performs pumping functions in substantially the same way as currently compliant motor construction types. There is no possibility that the adoption of these amendments would have a significant effect on the environment or result in a physical change to the environment. Accordingly, these amendments are not subject to the CEQA b/c of the common sense exemption under section 15061(b)(3) of title 14 of the CA Code of regulations.
