Document Description
This project is a statewide rulemaking proceeding titled Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pumps (DPPP) and Replacement Dedicated-Purpose Pool Pump Motors (RDPPPM) Rulemaking, CEC Docket # 19-AAER-02. The project proposes statewide regulations to create energy efficiency standards for RDPPPM. 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 California. CEC is also proposing to incorporate existing Federal Appliance Efficiency regulations into California regulation for DPPP. The proposed regulations apply to RDPPPM and DPPP, manufactured on or after July 19, 2021. These requirements are motor capability standards for RDPPPM and pump capability standard for DPPP and do not mandate any particular technology or component. The variable speed motor and motor efficiency requirements are a capabilities of the motor and may be implemented by various motor technologies. Manufacturers will need to meet minimum motor efficiency standards and prescriptive motor speed control requirements. The proposed regulations relevant to this initial study are contained in: Proposed Amendments to Appliance Efficiency Regulations, California Code of Regulations, Title 20, sections 1601 Through 1609, 2019 Appliance Efficiency Rulemaking, Replacement Pool Pump Motors, Docket Number 19-AAER-02.
