On January 24, 2012, DOE published a Request for Information (RFI) in the Federal Register (77 FR 3461) to request information regarding the energy use and energy efficiency potential of miscellaneous residential and commercial electrical equipment. The RFI provided for the submission of comments by March 26, 2012. DOE has received notice from several stakeholders that they wish to provide comments, but were unable to meet the initial deadline. In order to ensure that this input is reviewed and accepted, DOE has determined that a re-opening of the public comment period is appropriate and hereby re-opens the comment period. DOE will consider any comments received by April 17, 2012 and deems any comments received between March 26, 2012 and April 17, 2012 to be timely submitted.
Issued in Washington, DC, on April 3, 2012.
Kathleen B. Hogan,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Efficiency, Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy.
