AGENCY: Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, DOE.
ACTION: Notice of availability of documents and limited reopening of the record and opportunity for public comment.
SUMMARY: The Department of Energy previously published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to adopt test procedures for measuring the energy efficiency of distribution transformers under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act, as amended, 42 U.S.C. 6317(a). Since the time that Notice appeared, the Department has received documents and comments containing new information concerning National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) TP 2, the sampling plan, and transformers to be covered by the rulemaking. In addition, DOE has concerns regarding the definition of a basic model. The Department is reopening the record of its rulemaking to provide an opportunity for additional public comment on the validity of this new information and its implications regarding the proposed test procedures and the policy options now under consideration by the Department.
