    States Resist Feds, Up Standards For Appliance Efficiency

    States Step Up on Appliance Standards as the Federal Government Goes Backwards

    Marianne Dimascio, July 18, 2019 (Appliance Standards Awareness Project)

    “States took the lead on new appliance efficiency standards during the first half of 2019, helping to counter some of the federal government’s efforts to stall and even reverse energy and water efficiency progress. Legislators in ten states and the District of Columbia filed bills to adopt appliance standards for more than 15 products not covered by national standards. Many also sought to push back against the proposed federal rollback of light bulb standards, by putting them into state law…Governors in Colorado, Hawaii, and Washington this year signed laws adopting cost-effective new appliance standards that will save consumers money, reduce energy and water waste, and decrease harmful carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. Not to be outdone, the California Energy Commission, a long-time leader on appliance standards, continued its regulatory work to add new standards. Vermont adopted its package of new appliance standards in 2018…

    [S]tates pursue standards is to reduce energy costs for their residents and businesses…Earlier this year the US Department of Energy proposed to roll back light bulb standards that take effect in January and that would be the biggest energy-saving standard of all time…Colorado, Vermont, and Washington pushed back against this misguided rollback attempt by including a provision that puts the federal light bulb standards into their new state laws. Nevada joined in the effort with its own new law…[California, Colorado, Hawaii, Vermont and Washington] have put in place legal provisions that ensure their residents will continue to benefit from all the other national efficiency standards even if they are repealed federally…” click here for more
