SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As indicated at the public meeting on September 28, 2004, the Department of Energy (DOE) announces the availability of a supplemental TSD appendix entitled, “Appendix 8E: Average Transformer Design Properties from Life-Cycle Cost Model.” This appendix provides information for the public to consider in connection with the July 29, 2004, ANOPR (69 FR 45375).

DOE has also identified a mislabeling found in the ANOPR on pages 45401 through 45404 and in Chapter 8 of the TSD on pages 8-38 through 8-43. On these pages, the text mistakenly labels some reported values as an “average manufacturer's selling price” when they should be referred to as the “consumer equipment cost before installation.” This mislabeling does not impact the inputs, results, or any other aspect of the ANOPR.Start Printed Page 67681

Stakeholders can locate and download the TSD Chapter 8 as well as the newly posted supplemental Appendix 8E on the Distribution Transformers ANOPR TSD page: http://www.eere.energy.gov/​buildings/​appliance_​standards/​commercial/​dist_​trans_​tsd_​061404.html.
