VEA-0018 - In the Matter of Whirlpool Corporation

This determination considers an Appeal filed by Whirlpool Corporation (Whirlpool) of a Decision and Order issued by the Office of Hearings and Appeals (OHA) on March 2, 2001. Diversified Refrigeration, Inc., 28 DOE ¶ , Case No. VEE-0079 (March 2, 2001) (Diversified). In the Decision and Order, OHA granted Diversified Refrigeration, Inc. (DRI) a limited exception from the revised standards of 10 C.F.R. Part 430, Energy Conservation Program for Consumer Products: Energy Conservation Standards for Refrigerators, Refrigerator-Freezers and Freezers (Refrigerator Efficiency Standards), that become effective July 1, 2001. 10 C.F.R. § 430.32. In its Appeal, Whirlpool argues that the exception relief granted to DRI should be withdrawn or, in the alternative, modified. As set forth in this Decision and Order, we have concluded that Whirlpool’s Appeal must be denied.
