Energy Conservation Standards for Distribution Transformers (See also: Docket EERE-2011-BT-STD-0051 Low-Voltage Dry-Type Distribution Transformers http://www.regulations.gov/#!searchResults;rpp=25;po=0;s=EERE-2011-BT-STD-0051)

 
Docket ID: EERE-2010-BT-STD-0048
Agency: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE)
Parent Agency: Department of Energy (DOE)
Summary:
The current distribution transformer efficiency standards for medium-voltage-transformers apply to transformers manufactured or imported on or after January 1, 2010, and to low-voltage, dry type transformers manufactured or imported on or after January 1, 2007. As a result of a settlement agreement, DOE agreed to conduct a review of the standards for liquid-immersed and medium-voltage dry-type distribution transformers to determine if, pursuant to EPCA, the standards for these products need to be amended. As a result of the review, DOE published in the Federal Register a notice of proposed rulemaking which included new proposed standards for these products as well as low-voltage, dry-type transformers. Under the settlement agreement, DOE is obligated to publish in the Federal Register, no later than October 1, 2012, a final rule including any amendments to the standards for liquid-immersed and medium-voltage dry-type distribution transformers.
