NPGA Responds to DOE Rulemaking

On April 17, 2023, NPGA submitted a comment in response to the Department of Energy’s Proposed Rule regulating consumer conventional cooking products.  Previously, NPGA had met with and submitted comments to the Department of Justice in connection with the same rulemaking. NPGA’s comments focused on a variety of flaws in the rulemaking, including anticompetitive effects, excessive costs, the potential for fuel switching, limited benefits to the enhanced standards, small business impacts, and market effects.  DOE worked collaboratively with a variety of associations and other commenters to share, review, and coordinate our responses to this proposed rule. NPGA anticipates monitoring the docket, and remaining engaged in this rulemaking should it proceed to a Final Rule.
