Energy Conservation Program for Commercial Equipment: Energy Conservation Standards for Distribution Transformers Energy Conservation Standards [71FR44356]

Docket ID: EERE-2006-STD-0099
Agency: Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Office (EERE)
Parent Agency: Department of Energy (DOE)
Prior to enactment of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPACT 2005), the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA) did not establish energy efficiency standards for electric distribution transformers. EPCA directed DOE to determine whether standards for electric distribution transformers were warranted. However, as a result of amendments adopted in EPACT 2005, Public Law No. 109-58, section 135(c)(4), EPCA now contains standards for low voltage dry-type electric distribution transformers, but not other types of distribution transformers. This rulemaking will determine whether it is appropriate to establish standards for these other types of electric distribution transformers.
