§ 430.32 Energy and water conservation standards and their effective dates.
The energy and water (in the case of faucets, showerheads, water closets, and urinals) conservation standards for the covered product classes are:
(a) Refrigerators/refrigerator-freezers/freezers. These standards do not apply to refrigerators and refrigerator-freezers with total refrigerated volume exceeding 39 cubic feet (1104 liters) or freezers with total refrigerated volume exceeding 30 cubic feet (850 liters). The energy standards as determined by the equations of the following table(s) shall be rounded off to the nearest kWh per year. If the equation calculation is halfway between the nearest two kWh per year values, the standard shall be rounded up to the higher of these values.
The following standards remain in effect from July 1, 2001 until September 15, 2014:

(4) Any class A external power supply manufactured on or after July 1, 2008 shall be clearly and permanently marked in accordance with the External Power Supply International Efficiency Marking Protocol, as referenced in the ‘Energy Star Program Requirements for Single Voltage External Ac-Dc and Ac-Ac Power Supplies,’ (incorporated by reference; see § 430.3), published by the Environmental Protection Agency.
(iii) Non-application of no-load mode requirements. The no-load mode energy efficiency standards established in paragraph (w)(1)(i) of this section shall not apply to an external power supply manufactured before July 1, 2017, that—
(A) Is an AC-to-AC external power supply;
(B) Has a nameplate output of 20 watts or more;
(C) Is certified to the Secretary as being designed to be connected to a security or life safety alarm or surveillance system component; and
(D) On establishment within the External Power Supply International Efficiency Marking Protocol, as referenced in the “Energy Star Program Requirements for Single Voltage External Ac-Dc and Ac-Ac Power Supplies” (incorporated by reference, see § 430.3), published by the Environmental Protection Agency, of a distinguishing mark for products described in this clause, is permanently marked with the distinguishing mark.
(x) General service incandescent lamps, intermediate base incandescent lamps and candelabra base incandescent lamps.
(1) The energy conservation standards in this paragraph apply to general service incandescent lamps:
(i) Intended for a general service or general illumination application (whether incandescent or not);
(ii) Has a medium screw base or any other screw base not defined in ANSI C81.61 (incorporated by reference; see § 430.3); and
(iii) Is capable of being operated at a voltage at least partially within the range of 110 to 130 volts.
(A) General service incandescent lamps manufactured after the effective dates specified in the tables below, except as described in paragraph (x)(1)(B) of this section, shall have a color rendering index greater than or equal to 80 and shall have rated wattage no greater than and rated lifetime no less than the values shown in the table below:

750-1049 43 1,000 hrs 1/1/2014
310-749 29 1,000 hrs 1/1/2014
(B) Modified spectrum general service incandescent lamps manufactured after the effective dates specified shall have a color rendering index greater than or equal to 75 and shall have a rated wattage no greater than and rated lifetime no less than the values shown in the table below:
Modified Spectrum General Service Incandescent Lamps
Rated lumen ranges Maximum rate wattage Minimum rate life-time Effective date
