Biden Admin Rolls Out Slew Of Regs Targeting Americans’ Appliances On Last Friday Of The Year

The Department of Energy (DOE) finalized or proposed a bevy of regulatory actions cracking down on numerous appliances on Friday.

The DOE proposed new rules designed to promote “energy efficient” commercial fans and blowers, and also finalized energy efficiency standards for refrigerators and freezers, the agency announced Friday. The regulatory actions are the latest in a string of moves by the Biden administration intended to phase out a host of fossil fuel-powered appliances and replace them on the market with more energy efficient, and often electric, equivalents.

“Today’s announcement is a testament to the Biden-Harris Administration’s commitment to lowering utility costs for working families, which is helping to simultaneously strengthen energy independence and combat the climate crisis,” Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm said of her agency’s actions. “DOE will continue to move quickly in 2024—together with our industry partners and stakeholders—to update and strengthen outdated energy efficiency standards, which is critical to innovation, more consumer options, and healthier communities.”


Compliance with the finalized fridge and freezer standards will be required starting in either 2029 or 2030, depending on the model and configuration of the equipment, according to the agency. The DOE projects that the rule will cut carbon dioxide emissions by more than 100 million tons.

The proposed set of regulations are modeled on those already in place in California, according to the DOE. The regulations are expected to kick in starting in 2029 and are projected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 300 million tons.

The Biden administration, led primarily by the DOE, has promulgated numerous regulatory actions that are designed to reduce the use of fossil fuel-powered appliances that tend to be cheaper up front than their more “energy efficient” counterparts. Other appliances the administration has sought to regulate include water heaters, gas-powered portable generatorsfurnaces and pool pump motors.

Numerous energy policy experts have asserted that the Biden administration’s regulatory blitz on appliances is likely to limit consumer choice and impose higher up-front costs for the sake of fighting climate change. The DOE, on the other hand, estimates that the full suite of energy efficiency regulations will provide approximately $1 trillion in consumer savings over the next 30 years.

The DOE did not respond immediately to a request for comment.

  1. I have just received my 3rd payment order and $30,000 that I have built up on my laptop in a month through an online agent. This job is good and his regular salary is much better than my normal job. Work now and start making money online yourself.

  2. I loved as much as you will receive carried out right here The sketch is tasteful your authored subject matter stylish nonetheless you command get got an edginess over that you wish be delivering the following unwell unquestionably come further formerly again as exactly the same nearly very often inside case you shield this hike

  3. There is NO “fossil fuel” cheaper than Natural Gas!! My electric bill is LOADED with taxes, and that is ALL nickel and dime taxes from governments.
    Democrats are imbeciles. All of them.

  4. I make over 13k a month working part-time. I listened to different humans telling me how a good deal of cash they may make online,N255 so I was determined to locate out. Well, it turned into all actual and it absolutely modified my life. Everybody must try this job now by just using this

  5. Only a king or dictator runs a country on “Executive Orders”!
    As of April 15, 2021, President Biden had already signed 59 Executive Orders and actions since taking office on January 6, 2020.

    QUOTATION: “Well, if you can’t get the votes by executive order, you’re going to do something.’ Things you can’t do by executive order unless you’re a dictator. We’re a democracy. We need consensus.”
    …said the hypocrite dictator – “Uncle Joe” Biden

    “In this country, we are not ruled by an all-powerful executive with a pen and a phone. Instead, we are ruled by a Constitution that provides for three distinct and independent branches of government…”

    Political futures:
    “Executive Orders are canceled as easily as they were created. Policy shifts prove ephemeral. What is America’s policy on a border wall? On the Keystone Pipeline? On Iran’s nuclear development? When the answers to such questions are a matter of presidential caprice rather than an act of Congress, they aren’t answers at all — merely holding patterns apt to change after the next election.” —Jeff Jacoby

    Presidential Rulings by “Executive Order” of one President can be simply countermanded and declared invalid by the Next President.

    That is no way to run a Country! No matter who is President! Besides, they bypass Congress and are UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
    Therefore, all Executive Orders should be banned, unless given for CRITICAL, “Immediate Response Required” things like Declaring War, or a Federal response to a National or Local emergency like a devastating flood or hurricane, and where leaving it up to Congress to decide would delay any timely response!

    Or non-critical things like declaring Flags to be flown at Half-Mast for a specific reason such as 9-11, or for things like declaring “National Potato Pancake Day”.

    We have a Congress that is the only one Constitutionally allowed to Create Law.

    Congress needs to write a Law that limits the breadth and scope of exactly what “Executive Orders” may accomplish, so that Presidents and State Governors may not go off the wall with willy-nilly personal opinions on what they want to be as “law”.
