The Talk

By Susan McKay

In the recent months, there have been several opportunities for Energy Star partners to have their voices heard. In May of 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency invited public comment on existing regulations pursuant to Executive Order 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agency. 

In October 2017, fenestration companies had the chance to comment on the proposed FenStar Certification Program Documents. In November 2017, the EPA asked stakeholders to provide comments on the Energy Star program. Also in November, the House Subcommittee on Energy held a hearing on a discussion draft of the Energy Reform Act of 2017.  

Input on the Energy Star program continues to be sought from multiple sources and, if you have not already, consider taking the time to review the EPA letter and the draft language for the Energy Star Reform Act.
