Title 9 : Commerce and Trade

Chapter 074 : ENERGY EFFICIENCY STANDARDS FOR APPLIANCES AND EQUIPMENT

(Cite as: 9 V.S.A. § 2797)
  • § 2797. Revised standards

    The Commissioner may adopt rules, in accordance with the provisions of 3 V.S.A. chapter 25, to revise efficiency standards for the products listed in section 2794 of this title, in order to make the standards conform to standards in effect in other states, where to do so is in the interests of the electrical energy consumers of the State. In considering increased standards, the Commissioner shall set efficiency standards upon a determination that increased efficiency standards would serve to promote energy conservation in the State and would be cost-effective for consumers who purchase and use those products. No increased efficiency standards shall become effective within one year following the adoption of any amended rules establishing those increased efficiency standards. The Commissioner may apply for a waiver of federal preemption in accordance with federal procedures (42 U.S.C. § 6297(d)) for State efficiency standards for any product regulated by the federal government. (Added 2005, No. 152 (Adj. Sess.), § 1.)
