DOE Proposes Revision of Lamps Covered by Energy Standards

Today, the Department of Energy (DOE) proposed a revision of definitions of certain types of lamps covered by general-service lamp energy efficiency standards. In January 2017, DOE published two final rules concerning the definition of general-service lamps, which resulted in the energy standards being applied to certain categories of lamps previously excluded, such as 3-way lamps, reflector lamps, candelabra lamps, and decorative globe-shaped lamps. On February 6, DOE issued a new proposed rulemaking, stating: “DOE has since determined that the legal basis underlying those revisions misconstrued existing law. As a result, DOE is issuing this notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) proposing to withdraw the definitions established in the January 19, 2017, final rules. DOE proposes to maintain the existing regulatory definitions of GSL and GSIL, which are the same as the statutory definitions of those terms.”
