Just in Time for Thanksgiving, A Feast of Energy Savings from DOE's Proposed New Electric Motor Standards
New motors meeting the proposed standards purchased over the next 30 years will save businesses about $23 billion.
DOE estimates that proposed standards would yield $3 billion in net savings for businesses and towns and would reduce CO2 emissions by 15–17 million metric tons by 2030.
The final rule is expected in January 2013 (DOE missed the January 2012 statutory deadline.)
Lost Consumer and Business Savings
The Obama Administration has missed several deadlines for efficiency standards. These counters track the lost savings and additional emissions due to the delays.
