Colorado Governor Bill Owens vetoed House Bill 1162, state appliance energy efficiency standards. The legislation would have established minimum energy efficiency requirements on 14 products sold in Colorado, U.S. starting in 2008.

According to a statement from environment advocate group the Southwest Energy Efficiency Project (SWEEP), there was broad support for the energy efficiency requirements in the Colorado legislature. The bill passed the House Business Affairs and Labor Committee on a 12-1 vote and the Senate Business, Labor and Technology Committee on a 6-1 vote. State standards similar to those vetoed by Governor Owens were enacted last week in Arizona, with the majority of Republicans in the legislature supporting them.

The products covered in the bill include torchiere-style light fixtures, exit signs, reflector lamps, pool pumps, commercial refrigerators and freezers, ice makers, AC-DC converters for electronic devices, pre-rinse spray nozzles used in commercial kitchens, and traffic signals. These products are not covered under federal energy efficiency standards. The U.S. states of Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maryland, and New Jersey have already adopted energy-efficiency standards on these products.
