DOE Issues a Notice of Proposed Determination, Public Meeting and Request for Comment Pertaining to Standards for Commercial Clothes Washers 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued a pre-publication Federal Register notice pertaining to energy conservation standards for commercial clothes washers (CCWs). The Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), prescribes standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including CCWs. EPCA also requires 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.

  • DOE will accept comments, data, and information regarding this NOPD until 60 days after date of publication in the Federal Register. DOE will send a follow-up e-mail once the notice publishes to announce the closing date of the comment period.
  • Interested persons may submit comments identified by docket number EERE–2019–BT–STD-0044, by email (CommClothesWashers2019STD044@ee.doe.gov), Federal eRulemaking portal (http://www.regulations.gov).
  • DOE will hold a webinar on Tuesday, February 8, 2022, from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
