Energy Conservation Standards for Small Electric Motors
This document is Chapter 15 of the TSD supporting the Energy Conservation Standards for Small Electric Motors Rulemaking. This chapter describes potential environmental effects that may result from energy conservation standards for small electric motors. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s proposed energy conservation standards are not site-specific and would apply to all 50 states and U.S. territories. Therefore, none of the proposed standards would impact land uses, cause any direct disturbance to the land, or directly affect biological resources in any one area.
