NEMA Calls on Secretary of Energy to Complete Rulemaking for General Service Lamps

The Department of Energy (DOE) began the rulemaking in December 2013 and published two rules on January 19, 2017, addressing only one of the issues that Congress required for the rulemaking. These rules did not address the key issue on which Congress required DOE to act: whether or not standards for general service incandescent lamps should be amended to be more stringent than the standards for those lamps that Congress enacted in EISA-2007. Nor did the rules address robust standards for light-emitting diode (LED) lamps that were originally proposed by DOE in 2016. NEMA has also called upon DOE to establish a robust, economically justified national efficiency standard for general service LED lamps and to consider standards for certain other LED lamps. http://www.nema.org
