Title: Energy Conservation Standards for Commercial Clothes Washers 
Abstract:

Consistent with the requirements under the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is examining whether to amend the current energy conservation standards for commercial clothes washers. To this end, DOE must determine whether standards more stringent than those currently in place would result in a significant amount of energy savings and whether such amended standards would be technologically feasible and economically justified. As a result of this effort, DOE may propose and adopt more stringent standards or issue a determination that no amendments to the current standards are required.
