GAO-08-214R: Oct 31, 2007
- Full Report:
GAO reviewed the Department of Energy's new rule on the Energy Conservation Program for commercial equipment's distribution transformers energy conservation standards. GAO found that (1) the final rule adopts energy conservation standards for liquid-immersed and medium-voltage, dry-type distribution transformers, and these standards are minimum efficiency levels for the transformers manufactured for sale in the United States or imported into the United States on or after January 1, 2010; and (2) with the exception of required 60-day delay in effective date, the Department of Energy complied with the applicable requirements in promulgating the rule.
