Energy Standards for Fluorescent Lamp Ballasts Would Not Be Amended under DOE Proposal
22 October 2019
The U.S. Department of Energy has initially determined that the current mandatory energy conservation standards for fluorescent lamp ballasts do not need to be amended. Interested parties may submit comments on this proposed determination, as well as the associated analyses and results, by 5 November.
The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 prescribes mandatory energy conservation standards for various consumer products and certain commercial and industrial equipment, including fluorescent lamp ballasts. EPCA also requires the DOE to periodically determine whether more stringent amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified and would result in significant energy savings. The agency has preliminarily determined that amended standards for fluorescent lamp ballasts would not be cost effective.
