Update on Commercial Dryer Testing in California
(March, 2018) TCATA joined five other trade associations in submitting further comments to the California Energy Commission (CEC) on their proposals to test, certify, and require markings for commercial dryers in order to increase efficiency. Many technical aspects of the CEC's proposed test development process were addressed in these comments, and all five associations pointed out that the test development process has not been particularly transparent. We also noted that the proposed test is too broad and cumbersome, and is geared toward artificially high energy savings that are purely theoretical.
