Appliance Efficiency Standards Rulemaking for Commercial and Industrial Air Compressors
Document Type
NEG - Negative Declaration

Document Description
The project proposes statewide regulations of efficiency required for commercial and industrial air compressors. These products are not covered by federal appliance efficiency standards. The required new efficiency standards apply to newly manufactured products sold or offered for sale in CA. The proposed regulations apply to rotary positive displacement lubricated air compressions that are liquid or air cooled with fixed or variable speed, manufactured on or after January 1, 2022. These requirements are performance standards and do not mandate any particular technology or component. Manufacturers will need to reduce the energy consumption to meet the proposed standards.
