Diana DeGette (Democrat-CO) introduced H.R. 518 to the House of Representatives on January 13, 2017. The bill pertains to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act.


The bill was passed by a verbal vote with greater than 2/3 support on January 23, 2016. The bill was received in the Senate and read twice and referred to the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources on January 24, 2016.


There are no amendments.


This bill amends the Energy Policy and Conservation Act to exclude from energy conservation standards for external power supplies any power supply circuit, driver, or device designed to power certain light-emitting diodes or to power ceiling fans using direct current motors. The Department of Energy may prescribe energy conservation standards for that equipment no earlier than one year after the date on which a test procedure has been prescribed by using its authority to improve the energy efficiency of electric motors and pumps and other industrial equipment.
