In a show of bi-partisan support the Colorado, U.S. House of Representatives passed a measure to make certain appliances sold in Colorado more energy-efficient.

The Appliance Efficiency Standards, HB 1162, establishes minimum efficiency standards on 15 appliances not already covered by federal efficiency standards. If these standards go into law, it is estimated that they will save Colorado consumers and businesses over U.S. $500 million.

U.S. states of Connecticut, California, Maryland, and New Jersey have already adopted efficiency standards on these products and others. Washington, Arizona, and other state legislatures are also considering similar legislation.

"The efficiency standards will save consumers and businesses money, reduce pollutant emissions, and save water. It is refreshing to see the legislature act in a bipartisan manner to advance practical solutions to Colorado's economic and environmental challenges," stated Howard Geller, executive director of the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP).

Select light fixtures, exit signs, traffic signals, pool pumps, commercial refrigerators and freezers, commercial clothes washers, and a.c. to d.c. power converters are among the products included.

The bill was passed by the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee by a 12-to-1 vote on Feb. 2, 2005. HB 1162 now goes to the Senate for consideration.
