NPGA FILES SUIT AGAINST DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY

Written on: April 14, 2024

From the National Propane Gas Association Bobtail

On Tuesday, April 9, NPGA and partner organizations filed an initial brief with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in an ongoing challenge against three United States Department of Energy (DOE) rules that would limit customer access to propane appliances. The challenged standards would, in violation of the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), eliminate from the market furnaces and commercial water heaters installed in millions of homes and businesses today. Our brief argues that DOE rules do not follow statutory requirements and fail to meet the necessary legal standard of being technologically feasible and economically justified.
