Regional Standards Update on 80% Furnaces

Regional Standards Update

A motion has been approved that legally forbids the Department of Energy from enforcing the furnace standard in the Northern Region that was due to take effect May 1, 2013. Should the court decide to enact the standard, there will be a six month delay before enforcement can begin.

Here is a link from HARDI with the court's decision. 

Essentially, 80% furnaces that were unable to be installed May 1, 2013, now can be installed without legal consequence for at least six months, or six months from the date that the court makes a final ruling on the standard.
