The Energy Policy and Conservation Act of 1975 was intended to reduce energy consumption at another time in history when we were facing an energy crisis. While this policy sets minimum standards for both residential and commercial appliances such as ovens, dishwashers, refrigerators and dryers, as technology improves the standards need also to adjust. However, the Bush administration was sued by 14 states for not updating standards on 22 appliances as required by law. President Obama, however, has mandated that the DOE remedy this situation, because otherwise, all products manufactured before the standards are in place are still eligible for sale. Other products, such as reach in freezers, chillers, and gas space heaters are not covered by Federal Legislation, although they are by some State Legislation (California).
