The appliance industry today applauded the decision by the Department of Energy (DOE) to deny a petition by the California Energy Commission (CEC) seeking separate water usage regulations for residential clothes washers sold in the state.
   
According to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM), this important decision, announced today, recognizes the wisdom of Congress' decision to enact the National Appliance Energy Conservation Act (NAECA), which established national standards for appliance energy efficiency.
  
Had the CEC's petition been granted, California would have been permitted to deviate from DOE's highly successful national energy efficiency program for these products, and establish separate efficiency standards for residential clothes washers sold in the state.
  
According to AHAM, the proven success of the national program is reflected in the fact that since 1990 energy efficiency has improved nearly 85 percent for both refrigerators and clothes washers and 62 percent for dishwashers. In clothes washers and dishwashers, the minimum energy efficiency standards for those products have resulted in the reduction of water usage, directly addressing the water savings needs cited by the CEC in its request for a waiver.
